Endpoint:
flammable liquids: obsolete as covered by section 'Flash point'
Data waiving:
study technically not feasible
Justification for data waiving:
the study does not need to be conducted because the substance is a liquid
Justification for type of information:
JUSTIFICATION FOR DATA WAIVING
Study technically not feasible. The study does not need to be conducted because the substance is a liquid and this endpoint is covered by section Flash point.
Endpoint:
substances / mixtures which in contact with water emit flammable gases
Data waiving:
study scientifically not necessary / other information available
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:
JUSTIFICATION FOR DATA WAIVING
Study scientifically not necessary / other information available. The practical experience of the sponsor shows that no gases are developed, when the test substance is in contact with water. The test substance is therefore regarded as not being flammable in contact with water. Moreover, there are no functional groups within the test item molecule that could cause flammability in contact with water, basis: "Guidance on information requirements and chemical safety assessment", Chapter R.7a: Endpoint specific guidance, R.7.1.10.2 (ECHA, October 2015).
Endpoint:
pyrophoric liquids
Data waiving:
study scientifically not necessary / other information available
Justification for data waiving:
other:
Justification for type of information:
JUSTIFICATION FOR DATA WAIVING
Study scientifically not necessary because practical experience exists at the sponsor and the test facility, e.g. when handling small amounts of the test substance repeatedly in air during testing. Moreover, there are no functional groups within the test item molecule that could cause pyrophoricity, basis: "Guidance on information requirements and chemical safety assessment", Chapter R.7a: Endpoint specific guidance, R.7.1.10.2 (ECHA, October 2015).

Description of key information

Flammability: Data waiving: In accordance with REACH Annex XI, this study is scientifically unjustified. The flammability of liquids is determined on the basis of their flash point (in combination with their boiling point), their ability to emit flammable gases upon contact with water and their pyrophoricity. The molecular structure of the test item does not contain groups that indicate potential reactivity with water or phyrophoric properties and handling of the substance indicates that this is the case.  
Flammability in contact with water: Data waiving (study scientifically not necessary / other information available): Based on experience and on the structure of the molecule, the substance is not regarded as flammable in contact with water.
Pyrophoricity: Data waiving (study scientifically not necessary / other information available): Based on experience and the structure of the molecule, the substance is regarded as not pyrophoric.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flammability:
non flammable

Additional information

Justification for classification or non-classification

Based on the available data, the substance is not classified for flammability according to CLP Regulation (EC) no. 1272/2008.
