explosive properties of explosives
Data waiving:
study scientifically not necessary / other information available
Justification for data waiving:
the study does not need to be conducted because there are no chemical groups present in the molecule which are associated with explosive properties

Description of key information

According to Regulation (EC) 1907/2006 Annex VII, column 2, section 7.11, the study does not need to be conducted because there are no chemical groups present in the molecule which are associated with explosive properties. This substance is considered to be “inert” in the context of explosivity, since it already represents titanium in its highest oxidation state.  Further, it is noted that despite long-term industrial use of the substance, it is not classified for explosive properties according to UN transport regulations.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Explosiveness:
non explosive

Additional information

Justification for classification or non-classification

Titanium dioxide does not need to be classified according to CLP Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 since explosive properties are considered non-relevant based on the lack of functional group.
