Description of key information

In accordance with column 2 of Annex VII of the REACH regulation, the study need only be conducted if surface activity is a desired property of the chemical. The chemical Disodium 2-(3-oxo-6-oxidoxanthen-9-yl)benzoate (Common Name: Fluorescein sodium) is widely used as a fluorescent tracer for many medical applications, where surface activity is not an important consideration. Hence this study was considered for waiver.
