Description of key information

In accordance with point 7.10, Column 2, Annex VIII and Annex XI of Regulation 1907/2006, the performance of this study is scientifically unnecessary. The flammability of liquids is determined on the basis of their flashpoint (in combination with their boiling point), their ability to emit flammable gases upon contact with water and their pyrophoricity. The molecular structure of the substance does not contain groups that indicate potential reactivity with water or pyrophoric properties and handling of the substance indicates that this is the case. Furthermore the results of the submitted flashpoint study indicate that the substance is not a flammable liquid. Testing in accordance with EU Method A.10 (Flammability (Solids)), EU Method A.11 (Flammability (Gases)), EU Method A.12 (Flammability (Contact with Water)) and EU Method A.13 (Pyrophoric Properties of Solids and Liquids) is therefore not required.
