Administrative data

Description of key information

The key studies for skin and eye irritation were both by Biolab (1991; rel 1). Following a 4 hour occlusive exposure the test substance was found not irritating to skin, with all scores <1.5.  Similarly, the test substance was found not irritating to eye.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Skin irritation / corrosion

Endpoint conclusion
Endpoint conclusion:
no adverse effect observed (not irritating)

Eye irritation

Endpoint conclusion
Endpoint conclusion:
no adverse effect observed (not irritating)

Additional information

The most recent, high reliability studies were selected as key.

For both skin and eye irritation, several additional high reliability supporting studies were available which were in agreement with the key findings.

The presence of mixed branched and linear structures does not appear confer aliphatic alcohols different toxicological properties compared to the Alcohols, C14 -15 linears only substance. Therefore the data is freely read-across between Alcohols, C14 -15 -branched and Alcohols, C14 -15 substances.

In some cases the CAS and chemical identity stated refer to SDA nomenclature for this substance. In REACH substance identification it is necessary to be more specific as to the chain lengths present. Full details may be found in the CSR

Justification for classification or non-classification

Based on the available information, no classification or labelling is required for the irritation endpoints for alcohols C14 -15-branched, in accordance with current EU guideline.
