Description of key information

Studies on skin and eye irritation should not be conducted since strontium is a strong base (pH11.5) and meets the classification criteria of Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 for Skin Corr. 1A (H314: Causes severe skin burns and eye damage.)

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Skin irritation / corrosion

Link to relevant study records
Reference
Endpoint:
skin corrosion: in vitro / ex vivo
Data waiving:
study scientifically not necessary / other information available
Justification for data waiving:
the study need not be conducted because the available information indicates that the criteria are met for classification as corrosive to the skin or irritating to eyes
the study need not be conducted because the substance is a strong acid (pH <= 2.0) or base (pH => 11.5)
Endpoint conclusion
Endpoint conclusion:
adverse effect observed (corrosive)

Eye irritation

Reference
Endpoint:
eye irritation: in vitro / ex vivo
Data waiving:
study scientifically not necessary / other information available
Justification for data waiving:
the study need not be conducted because the available information indicates that the criteria are met for classification as corrosive to the skin or irritating to eyes
Endpoint conclusion
Endpoint conclusion:
adverse effect observed (irreversible damage)
