Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results:
not irritating
Remarks:
Migrated information Criteria used for interpretation of results: EU
Conclusions:
Since the mean irritation scores 24 to 72 hours after application were below the thresholds defined in Commission Directive 93/21/EEC (18th adaptation to technical progress of Council Directive 67/548/EEC), classification of CA 2342 A (Intermediate of CGA 293343) as to its skin irritating properties is not required. This classification still applies to the recent versions of both UN-GHS and EU-GHS (CLP).
Executive summary:

An acute dermal irritation/corrosion study was performed to determine the irritant and corrosive potency of CA 2342 A (Intermediate of CGA 293343) on the albino rabbit skin. The study protocol was based on OECD Guideline No. 404, adopted July 17, 1992, and on Annex V, part B of Council Directive 79/831/EEC, 1992.

There were no skin reactions in all rabbits 1 through 72 hours after gauze patch removal. The test was concluded after the 72 hour evaluation. All animals survived to the scheduled sacrifice. There were no remarkable in-life observations. A slight loss of body weight was observed on experimental day 3 in one animal.

Since the mean irritation scores 24 to 72 hours after application were below the thresholds defined in Comission Directive 93/21/EEC (18th adaptation to technical progress of Council Directive 67/548/EEC), classification of CA 2342 A (Intermediate of CGA 293343) as to its skin irritating properties is not required. This classification still applies to the recent versions of both UN-GHS and EU-GHS (CLP).
