Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

Description of key information

Several studies are available for skin irritation/corrosion and eye irritation. Most of them were only available as secondary literature - with the exception of the study by Thyssen, 1978.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Skin irritation / corrosion

Endpoint conclusion
Endpoint conclusion:
adverse effect observed (corrosive)

Eye irritation

Endpoint conclusion
Endpoint conclusion:
adverse effect observed (irritating)

Additional information

In the studies for skin irritation/corrosion one of them characterised bis(2-ethylhexyl) hydrogen phosphate as not irritating while the others jugded the test substance as (highly) irritating or corrosive.

All studies for eye irritation found bis(2-ethylhexyl) hydrogen phosphate to be irritating or corrosive or not fully reversible..

Effects on skin irritation/corrosion: corrosive

Effects on eye irritation: irritating

Justification for classification or non-classification

Due to the results of the key study and by a weight of evidence consideration for skin irritation/corrosion a classification as C, R34 (causes burns) (GHS: Skin Corr. 1 C; H314) is justified. Due to the severe effects on the eye R41 (Risk of serious damage to eyes) (GHS: Eye Damage 1; H318) is adequate.
