Irritant / corrosive response data:
Slight signs of irritation occurred in 6/6 animals (iris, conjunctivae redness, chemosis) but were fully reversible within 7 d except in 1/6 animals (still slight conjunctivae redness). The irritation was very weak and does not fulfill the CLP criteria for classification.
Other effects:
Dulling of cornea on day 1 in 1/6 animals, disappeared on day 2.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
Conclusions:
The substance induced weak signs of eye irritation (iris, conjunctivae redness, chemosis). However, the irritating effect was not sufficient to meet the GHS criteria for classification. All signs (except redness in 1/6 test animals) were fully reversible within 7 d. The substance is not considered an eye irritant in the sense of the CLP Regulation.
