Additional information

According to Regulation (EC) No. 1907/2006, Annex VII, Column 2 , 7.13, a study on the oxidizing properties of the substance does not need to be conducted if the substance is incapable of reacting exothermically with combustible materials on the basis of chemical structure. In Regulation (EC) No. 440/2008, the basis of the test method is to measure the potential for a liquid substance to increase the burning rate or burning intensity of a combustible substance. According to the Technical Report on Development of an Enhanced Hazard Classification System for Oxidizing Chemicals (Ed.,Buc, EC and Hoffman, DJ) by the National Fire Protection Foundation (April, 2006, Quincy, MA, U.S.A.), oxidizing chemicals are characterized as having an oxygen or halide atom in their chemical structure, which can undergo oxidation/reduction reactions. As this molecule contains no oxygen, flourine or chlorine it is not considered as an oxidizing chemical, and is not expected to increase the combustion of other substances. Hence, the criterion for this exemption is met.

Justification for classification or non-classification

4,4'-Methylenedicyclohexanamine is not an oxidising substance based on its chemical structure, which has no oxygen or halide atom.
