Additional information

Skin irritation / corrosion

As per the column 2 of Annex VII of REACH regulation, the available information indicates that the substance 2-aminobenzenesulphonic acid is a strong acid (pH < 2.0). Also the substance is classified as very corrosive. Thus testing for skin irritation is not likely. Hence this endpoint was considered for waiver.

Eye irritation

As per the column 2 of Annex VII of REACH regulation, the available information indicates that the substance 2-aminobenzenesulphonic acid is a strong acid (pH < 2.0). Also the substance is classified as very corrosive. Thus testing for eye irritation is not likely. Hence this endpoint was considered for waiver.

Justification for selection of skin irritation / corrosion endpoint:

As per the column 2 of Annex VII of REACH regulation, the available information indicates that the substance 2-aminobenzenesulphonic acid is a strong acid (pH < 2.0). Also the substance is classified as very corrosive. Thus testing for skin irritation is not likely. Hence this endpoint was considered for waiver.

Justification for selection of eye irritation endpoint:

As per the column 2 of Annex VII of REACH regulation, the available information indicates that the substance 2-aminobenzenesulphonic acid is a strong acid (pH < 2.0). Also the substance is classified as very corrosive. Thus testing for eye irritation is not likely. Hence this endpoint was considered for waiver.

Effects on skin irritation/corrosion: corrosive

Effects on eye irritation: corrosive

Justification for classification or non-classification

The chemical has been classified as a Skin and Eye irritant considering the fact that it has a pH value less than 2.
