Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results:
Category 1B (corrosive) based on GHS criteria
Conclusions:
Under the conditions of this study, the test substance, DMCHA, should be considered to be irritating, based on the results observed following exposure to rabbits. Based on these results, the test substance should be classified as a Category 1B skin corrosion/irritant and have the signal word Warning and the hazard statement H314: Causes severe skin burns and eye damage associated with it, in accordance with Regulation EC No. 1272/2008. According to Directive 67/548/EEC, the test substance should be classified as Corrosive (C) and should have the risk phrase R34 : Causes burns, associated with it.
Executive summary:

In a study conducted by Katz (1977), the test substance, cyclohexyldimethylamine (DMCHA), was tested for its ability to cause irritation when applied to the skin of 6 rabbits. The skin of the test animals was either intact or abraded and 50ml of test substance was applied to each rabbit. Readings on erythema, oedema and corrosion score were made at 4, 24, 48 and 72 hours post application and observations continued for 30 days post application. Under the conditions of this study, the test substance, DMCHA, should be considered to be irritating, based on the results observed following exposure to rabbits. Based on these results, the test substance should be classified as a Category 1B skin corrosion/irritant and have the signal word Warning and the hazard statement H314: Causes severe skin burns and eye damage

associated with it, in accordance with Regulation EC No. 1272/2008. According to Directive 67/548/EEC, the test substance should be classified as Corrosive (C) and should have the risk phrase R34 : Causes burns, associated with it.
