Endpoint:
oxidising solids
Data waiving:
study scientifically not necessary / other information available
Justification for data waiving:
the study does not need to be conducted because there are no chemical groups present in the molecule which are associated with oxidising properties and hence, the classification procedure does not need to be applied
Justification for type of information:
JUSTIFICATION FOR DATA WAIVING
In accordance with Annex VII, Column 2 of the REACH Regulation, this test does not need to be conducted if the substance is incapable of reacting exothermically with combustible materials, for example on the basis of the chemical structure. The Regulation defines examples of such substances as organic substances not containing oxygen or halogen atoms and these elements are not chemically bonded to nitrogen or oxygen. BMI contains oxygen, but the oxygen atoms in BMI are only bonded to carbon, therefore on this basis it is considered that BMI does not possess oxidising properties.

Description of key information

BMI is predicted not to have oxidising properties, based on an evaluation of the chemical structure.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Oxidising properties:
no

Additional information

Justification for classification or non-classification

On the basis of an evaluation of the chemical strucutre, BMI is predicted not to have oxidising properties. BMI therefore does not meet the criteria for classification as an oxidising solid under the CLP Regulation.
