Executive summary:

A study was performed to assess the irritation of the test material to the skin of the New Zealand White rabbit (SPL Standard Test Method 540.05). The method followed OECD guideline 404 and method B4 of Commission Directive 92/69/EEC (which constitutes Annex V of Council Directive 67/548/EEC).

A single, 4-hour semi-occluded application (500 mg) of the test material was administered to the intact skin of three rabbits. Skin reactions were recorded 1, 24, 48 and 72 hours after administration.

No erythema or oedema was noted, thus scores of skin reactions in all animals were 0. Yellow staining of the test site was recorded at the 1 and 24-hour observations which did not affect the evaluation of skin responses.

Conclusion

Mean values from gradings at 24, 48 and 72 hours after patch removal were lower than 2.3 in all animals for both erythema/eschar and oedema reactions, thus the test item is not a skin irritant.

Executive summary:

A study was performed to assess the irritation of the test material to the eye of the New Zealand White rabbit (SPL Standard Test Method 560.06). The method followed OECD guideline 405 and method B5 of Commission Directive 92/69/EEC (which constitutes Annex V of Council Directive 67/548/EEC). A single application of 0.1 ml (67.3 mg) of the test material was administered to the non irrigated eye of three rabbits. Ocular reactions were observed at 1, 24, 48 and 72 hours after administration.

The Maximum Group Mean Score was 4.1 and the related classification was as mild irritant (class 4 on a 1 -8 SCALE).

Where present, reactions were slight and fully reversible within 72 hours.

Conclusion

The mean values from gradings at 24, 48 and 72 hours were lower than 1 for corneal opacity, lower than 1 for iritis, lower than 2 for both conjunctival redness and oedema, in all of the three tested animals.

Therefore, the substance is not an eye irritant.

Additional information

SKIN IRRITATION

A study was performed to assess the irritation of the test material to the skin of the New Zealand White rabbit (SPL Standard Test Method 540.05). The method followed OECD guideline 404 and EU method B4. A single, 4 -hour semi-occluded application (500 mg) of the test material was administered to the intact skin of three rabbits. Observations of skin reactions were done at 1, 24, 48 and 72 hours after administration. Animals were assessed for erythema and oedema and scores were all 0. Yellow staining of the test site was recorded at the 1 and 24-hour observations which did not affect the evaluation of skin responses.

EYE IRRITATION

A study was performed to assess the irritation of the test material to the eye of the New Zealand White rabbit (SPL Standard Test Method 560.06). The method followed OECD guideline 405 and the method B.5. A single application of 0.1 ml (67.3 mg) of the test material was administered to the non irrigated eye of three rabbits. Observations of ocular reactions were done at 1, 24, 48 and 72 hours after administration. All effects were slight and fully reversible within 72 hours.

Justification for classification or non-classification

According to the CLP Regulation (EC 1272/2008), 3.2 Skin corrosion/irritation section, skin irritation means the production of reversible damage to the skin following the application of a test substance for up to 4 hours.

Mean values from gradings at 24, 48 and 72 hours after patch removal were lower than 2.3 in all animals for both erythema/eschar and oedema reactions, thus the test item does not meet the criteria to be classified as irritating, according to the CLP Regulation (EC 1272/2008).

According to the CLP Regulation (EC 1272/2008), serious eye damage means the production of tissue damage in the eye upon application of a test substance, which is not fully reversible after 21 days from application.

The mean values from gradings at 24, 48 and 72 hours were lower than 1 for corneal opacity, lower than 1 for iritis, lower than 2 for both conjunctival redness and oedema, in all of the three tested animals. All the reactions resulted to be fully reversible withing 72 hours. Therefore, the substance does not meet the criteria to be classified as eye irritating, according to the CLP Regulation (EC 1272/2008).
