Executive summary:

The test on skin irritation was performed in accordance with OECD TG 404. The test substance (0.5 mL) was spread onto 6 cm² patches (3) and applied to the intact skin of 3 previously shaven New Zealand White rabbits (females) for a 4 hours period under semiocclusive conditions. The first examination of the treated skin sites followed 1 hour after removal of the patches. Thereafter, examinations were performed daily for further 8 days.

Under the conditions of the present study, no signs of toxicity were seen.

Irritant / corrosive response data:
No signs of irritation were observed in the cornea and iris. The conjunctivae showed redness (score 1) in two rabbits during hour one of the study. Furthermore no signs of irritation were observed. The untreated eyes were unchanged.
Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
Conclusions:
According to the conducted study, the test substance is not regarded as irritant to the eyes.
Executive summary:

In a primary eye irritation study in accordance with OECD guideline 405 and EU method B.5, 0.1 mL of the undiluted test substance was instilled into the conjunctival sac of the right eye of three female New Zealand White rabbits. The eyes were not washed. Animals were then observed for up to 8 days. Irritation was scored by the method of Draize:

 

 

Mean score
(24, 48, and 72 hours)

Maximum value
(24, 48, or 72 hours)

Animal No.

Justification for classification or non-classification

The available experimental test data is reliable and suitable for classification purposes under Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008. As a result the substance is considered not to be classified for eye or skin irritation under Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008, as amended for the twelfth time in Regulation (EU) No 2019/521.
