Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results:
not irritating
Remarks:
Migrated information not classified Criteria used for interpretation of results: EU
Conclusions:
Pentaerythritol, reaction product with fatty acids, C8 to 18 (even numbered) and/or branched and/or unsaturated does not have to be classified and has no obligatory labelling requirement for eye irritation.
