Irritant / corrosive response data:
1/3 animals showed erythema score 1 one hour after exposure. No other skin reactions were observed at any other time points.
Other effects:
Large yellow discolouration of 3/3 skin sites, which was no longer observable on day two.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results:
not irritating
Remarks:
Migrated information Criteria used for interpretation of results: other: CLP regulation
Conclusions:
According to the classification criteria of Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 the test material is not irritating to skin under these test conditions. The test material contains relevant amounts of the submission substance. Therefore the test results are considered adequate to fulfil the endpoint requirements.
Executive summary:

The test material was subject to an Acute Dermal Irritation/Corrosion Test in the rabbit according to OECD TG 404. No skin reactions occured except a very slight erythema in 1/3 animals one hour after the end of exposure. Therefore, the test item has not to be classified for skin irritation according to Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008
