Description of key information

It is therefore unrealistic and unnecessary to conduct an experimental study for this endpoint.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

non flammable

Additional information

Justification for classification or non-classification

Tetrabromobisphenol-A is not known to exhibit pyrophoric properties, nor flammability in contact with water. In addition, a flammability study is not scientifically justified for a flame retardant substance. On this basis, no classification with regards to flammability is required according to Directive 67/548/EEC or Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008.
