Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results:
not irritating
Remarks:
Migrated information Criteria used for interpretation of results: EU
Conclusions:
According to Directive 2001/59/EC and Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008, Triazin UV-Absorber does not require classification as a skin irritant.
According to the UN Globally Harmonised System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals, Triazin UV-Absorber does not require classification as a skin irritant.
Executive summary:

An acute skin irritation study of the test item Triazin UV-Absorber was performed in New Zealand White rabbits. Parameters monitored during this study included mortality, body weight measurements and clinical observations. The irritation effects of the test item were evaluated according to the Draize method (OECD No.: 404, 2002). An amount of 0.5 g of the solid test item was applied neat to the skin of the experimental animals. The test item was applied as a single dose. Sufficient water to damp the material was used to ensure good contact with the skin and an adhesive clear plastic patch was applied. The trunk was wrapped in a semi-occlusive clear plastic film with medical tubing used to hold the patch in place. The untreated skin of each animal served as control. After 4 hours, the remaining test item was removed with water of body temperature. To assess skin irritation, animals were examined at 1, 24, 48 and 72 hours after the patch removal. Additional general examinations were performed daily. There was no mortality or systemic clinical change related to Triazin UV-Absorber administration. There was no effect of treatment on body weight.

During the observation at 1, 24, 48 and 72 hours after patch removal, there were no signs of skin irritation observed. The animals’ individual mean scores (considering readings at 24, 48 and 72 hours after patch removal) for erythema and oedema were 0.00 at all time points.

As no systemic or local clinical signs were observed at 72 hours after patch removal, the study was terminated after the 72-hour observation.

According to Directive 2001/59/EC and Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008, Triazin UV-Absorber does not require classification as a skin irritant. According to the UN Globally Harmonised System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals, Triazin UV-Absorber does not require classification as a skin irritant.
