    • (b) if the sum of concentrations of ingredients classified in the category “Serious Eye Damage — Category 1”, the category “Skin Corrosion — Category 1”, the subcategory “Skin Corrosion – Category 1A”, the subcategory “Skin Corrosion – Category 1B” and the subcategory “Skin Corrosion – Category 1C” is equal to or greater than 1.0% but less than 3.0%, the mixture is classified in the category “Eye Irritation — Category 2”;

    • (c) if the sum of concentrations of ingredients classified in the category “Eye Irritation — Category 2” is equal to or greater than 10.0%, the mixture is classified in the category “Eye Irritation — Category 2”;

    • (c.1) if the sum of concentrations of ingredients classified in the subcategory “Eye Irritation — Category 2A” is equal to or greater than 10.0%, and the mixture does not contain any ingredients classified in the category “Eye Irritation — Category 2” or the subcategory “Eye Irritation — Category 2B”, the mixture is classified in the category “Eye Irritation — Category 2” or the subcategory “Eye Irritation — Category 2A”;

    • (c.3) if the sum of the concentrations of ingredients set out in two or more of the following subparagraphs is equal to or greater than 10.0%, the mixture is classified in the category “Eye Irritation — Category 2”:

      • (i) ingredients classified in the category “Eye Irritation — Category 2”,

      • (ii) ingredients classified in the subcategory “Eye Irritation — Category 2A”, and

      • (iii) ingredients classified in the subcategory “Eye Irritation — Category 2B”; or

    • (d) if the sum of the results of the following subparagraphs is equal to or greater than 10.0%, the mixture is classified in the category “Eye Irritation — Category 2”:

      • (i) 10 times the total of the sum of concentrations of ingredients classified in the category “Serious Eye Damage — Category 1” and the sum of concentrations of ingredients classified in the category “Skin Corrosion — Category 1”, ingredients classified in the subcategory “Skin Corrosion — Category 1A”, ingredients classified in the subcategory “Skin Corrosion — Category 1B” and ingredients classified in the subcategory “Skin Corrosion — Category 1C”, and

      • (ii) the sum of concentrations of ingredients classified in the category “Eye Irritation — Category 2”, ingredients classified in the subcategory “Eye Irritation — Category 2A” and ingredients classified in the subcategory “Eye Irritation — Category 2B”.

  • Marginal note:Mixtures containing particular ingredients

    (3) A mixture is classified in a category of this hazard class in accordance with the following table if the mixture contains one or more substances, such as acids, bases, inorganic salts, aldehydes, phenols or surfactants, which could cause serious eye damage or eye irritation at concentrations below the concentration limits set out in subsection (2) and at least one ingredient with a concentration that is above the concentration limits set out below:
