Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

Materials and methods

Principles of method if other than guideline:
The potential of the UVCB substance to be eye irritant was established by classifying the complex metal substance based on Mixture rules from EU CLP (summation and/or additivity of classified components to derive Hazard class). The classification criteria (as set out in EU CLP Guidance Annex I: pg 247) can be used to estimate effects.
GLP compliance:
other quality assurance

Test material

Constituent 1
Reference substance name:
sulfuric acid hydrate
EC Number:
sulfuric acid hydrate
Details on test material:
Worst case (max across industry) as in iuclid section 1.2;
see IUCLID Section 1.4, for company specific elemental composition; and representative sample for mineralogical information (IUCLID Section 4.23 -Outotec report)

Results and discussion

Any other information on results incl. tables

The calculated classification via Additivity method resulted in "serious eye damage / eye irritation: category 1A H314”, driven by H2SO4

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results:
Category 1 (irreversible effects on the eye)
Migrated information Criteria used for interpretation of results: EU
Result can be used to predict hazard effect of the UVCB , and to classify it
Executive summary:

The study provided a Worst case estimate of the Eye Irritation/serious eye damage classification, derived on basis of the Classification outcome (Mixture toxicity rules) from a Worst case (maximum across industry) as defined in IUCLID section 1.2/1.4/4.23. The result is applicable to all Sulphuric acid, waste gas cooling and cleaning , copper smelting that fall under the defined concentration ranges (IUCLID section 1.2).
