Justification for classification or non-classification

Two reliable, guideline conform studies (OECD 404/405), documented under GLP principles, are available for silver chloride for skin and eye irritation/corrosion, respectively. All studies provide unequivocal negative results, i.e. showing that AgCl is not irritating or corrosive to skin or eyes. No hazard classification for these end-points is needed for AgCl.
