Description of key information

Skin irritation/corrosion
Six rabbits were exposed to the test material for 24 hours. Signs of irritation were observed (redness of the skin), which were not shown to be reversible. The test material is irritant to the rabbit's skin.
Six rabbits were exposed to the test material for 4 hours. No full destruction of the skin was observed. Therefore it can be concluded that the test material is not corrosive.
Eye irritation
The test substance was installed in the eye of 6 rabbits. During the 14 day observation period severe eye irritation is observed. The test substance is considered to be an eye irritant category 1.

Interpretation of results:
Category 1 (irreversible effects on the eye)
Remarks:
Migrated information Criteria used for interpretation of results: EU
Conclusions:
The test substance is a severe eye irritant
Executive summary:

The test substance was installed in the eye of 6 rabbits. During the 14 day observation period severe eye irritation is observed. The test substance is considered to be an eye irritant category 1.

Endpoint conclusion
Endpoint conclusion:
adverse effect observed (irritating)

Respiratory irritation

Endpoint conclusion
Endpoint conclusion:
no study available

Additional information

The available studies contain sufficient information to be used for risk assessment and classification and labelling. All tests are performed on a 40% formulation. It is not expected that the diluent used has contributed to the effects if any.


Justification for selection of skin irritation / corrosion endpoint:
Study was conducted prior to GLP regulations but used methods generally consistent with accepted procedures. Exposure duration in both the irritation as well as the corrosion test represent a worst case situation.

Justification for selection of eye irritation endpoint:
Study was conducted prior to GLP regulations but used a method similar to OECD 405

Effects on skin irritation/corrosion: irritating

Effects on eye irritation: highly irritating

Justification for classification or non-classification

Based on the outcome of the available tests, the test substance needs to classified as skin irritant (CLP category 2, H315: Causes skin

irritation) and severe eye irritant (CLP category 1, H318: Causes serious eye damage).
