Endpoint:
substances / mixtures which in contact with water emit flammable gases
Remarks:
And pyrophoricity.
Data waiving:
other justification
Justification for data waiving:
the study does not need to be conducted because the experience in production or handling shows that the substance does not react with water, e.g. the substance is manufactured with water or washed with water
other:
Justification for type of information:
In accordance to REACH Annex XI Section 2, with reference to the guidance mentioned in REACH Art 13(3) the test guidance "ECHA guidance on Information requirements and chemical safety assessment Chapter R.7a Endpoint specific guidance" needs to be respected. This guidance (R.7.1.10.1) indicates based on chemical structure water reactivity is not to be expected.
