Remarks on result:
other: see 'other information on results'

An evaluation of the functionality within the substance has been performed to identify the presence of elements commonly associated with oxidising behaviour. Typical oxidising agents contain functional groups such as halide-oxygen groups, nitrogen-oxygen groups and some metal-oxygen complexes. The raw materials used to manufacture the substance do not contain any halogens, nitrogen, or metals, and these elements are not present in the substance itself. Glutaric acid contains oxygen, however it is chemically bonded to hydrogen and/or carbon and therefore does not significantly contribute to the oxidising potential of the substance. In addition, glutaric acid does not meet the criteria for classification as an oxidising solid, see Section 2.14.4.1 of the CLP regulation.

It is concluded that glutaric acid does not have oxidising potential and does not require classification as an oxidising agent.

Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
Conclusions:
It is concluded that glutaric acid does not have oxidising potential and does not require classification as an oxidising agent.
Executive summary:
