Justification for classification or non-classification

Category 1

Substances shall be classified as skin sensitizers in category 1 where data are not sufficient for sub-categorisation in accordance with the following criteria:

(a) if there is evidence in humans that the substance can lead to sensitisation by skin contact in a substantial number of persons; or

(b) if there are positive results from an appropriate animal test.

As for guinea pig maximisation test, a response of at least 30 % of animals is considered positive.

Subcategorisation is done as follows in case of a guinea pig maximisation test:

Sub-category 1A

Substances showing a high frequency of occurrence in humans and/or a high potency in animals can be presumed to have the potential to produce significant sensitisation in humans. Severity of reaction may also be considered.

Specific criteria: ≥ 30 % responding at ≤ 0.1 % intradermal induction dose or ≥ 60 % responding at > 0.1 % to ≤ 1 % intradermal induction dose

Sub-category 1B

Substances showing a low to moderate frequency of occurrence in humans and/or a low to moderate potency in animals can be presumed to have the potential to produce sensitisation in humans. Severity of reaction may also be considered.

Specific criteria: ≥ 30 % to < 60 % responding at > 0.1 % to ≤ 1 % intradermal induction dose or ≥ 30 % responding at > 1 % topical induction dose.

As no positive response was seen in test animals upon a 5 % intradermal induction dose, the substance is not classified within the CLP Regulation (EC 1272/2008).
