Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results:
Category 2 (irritant) based on GHS criteria
Conclusions:
Linalyl acetate is classified as a skin irritant substance according to CLP and GHS criteria.
No study was conducted on the lavandin oil heavy fraction iself.
The test item is a natural complex substance (NCS). It is a mixture of several constituents, and linalyl acetate represents about 67% of this UVCB substance.
Literature above provided data for this major compound.
Executive summary:

The NCS is composed of several identified constituents, so it can be considered as a mixture according to the definition of the CLP Regulation. The decision logic for classification of mixtures from the ECHA Guidance on the Application of the CLP Criteria (2015) was used to determine the skin irritation / corrosion potential of the registered substance.

The registered substance has not been tested itself in appropriate in vitro or in vivo tests.

But one of its constituents is classified as skin irritant (Linalyl acetate at 67%) and none other constituents is assessed corrosive.

The single constituent is present above the CLP generic concentration limit of 10% that triggers classification of the mixture. Therefore, the registered substance is classified as a skin irritant substance without further testing according to the Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008.
