According to REACH Regulation (EC) No. 1907/2006, Annex VII, column 2 and Guidance Chapter R7a a study on eye irritation does not need to be conducted if the available information indicates that the criteria are met for classification as corrosive to the skin or irritating to eyes.

Eye irritation testing is not required, since titanium oxide sulphate is classified as corrosive to the eye according to Regulation 67/548/EEC (Risk phrase R35, “Causes severe burns”, Hazard code: “C”) and directive (EC) 1272/2008 (H318: Causes serious eye damage).
