Endpoint:
flammable solids
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
In accordance with section 2 of REACh Annex XI, UN N1 flammability study relevant for classification criteria under 4.13 does not apply to liquids. Please refer to Flash Point under IU section 4.11.
Reason / purpose:
reference to other study
Reason / purpose:
data waiving: supporting information
Endpoint:
pyrophoric liquids
Data waiving:
study scientifically not necessary / other information available
Justification for data waiving:
the study does not need to be conducted because the substance is known to be stable in contact with air at room temperature for prolonged periods of time (days) and hence, the classification procedure does not need to be applied
the study does not need to be conducted because the organic substance does not contain metals or metalloids and hence, the classification procedure does not need to be applied
Justification for type of information:
JUSTIFICATION FOR DATA WAIVING
In accordance with section 1 of REACh Annex XI, study for pyrophoric properties is deemed unnecessary based on the chemical structure that does not fall into critical categories described in ECHA guidance (e.g. no alkali metal, phosporous element, Grignard reagent, metal organic substances...), and based on the experience in handling, testing and use of the substance.
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 organic substance does not contain metals or metalloids and hence, the classification procedure does not need to be applied
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
the study does not need to be conducted because the substance is known to be soluble in water to form a stable mixture
Justification for type of information:
JUSTIFICATION FOR DATA WAIVING
In accordance with section 1 of REACh Annex XI, study for flammability if contact with water is deemed unnecessary based on the chemical structure that does not fall into critical categories described in ECHA guidance (e.g. no alkali metal, phosporous element, Grignard reagent, metal organic substances...), and based on the experience in handling, testing and use of the substance. In particular, in Water solubility testing presented under IUCLID Section 4.8, or in ecotoxicity testing under Section 6, though the substance is of low solubility, no particular reaction, hazardous or not, was observed when mixing.
Reason / purpose:
data waiving: supporting information
Endpoint:
self-heating substances / mixtures
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
According to ECHA Guidance on the Application of the CLP Criteria (v5.0, July 2017, §2.11.4.2.), the phenomenon of self-heating generally applies only to solids. The surface of liquids is not large enough for reaction with air, and the test method (UN N4) is not applicable to liquids. Therefore liquids, unless adsorbed, are not classified as self-heating.
Moreover, the chemical structure does not contain metals, which are typically self-heating substances.
Reason / purpose:
data waiving: supporting information

Description of key information

Flash point = 105°C (experimental): not a flammable liquid (CLP/GHS)

Not pyrophoric. No release of flammable gases if contact with water. No self-heating anticipated. (waived)

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flammability:
not classified

Additional information

As the substance is a liquid, the relevant test for flammable properties is the Flash Point measurement. A fully reliable experimental study is presented under IUCLID section 4.11.

Based on the chemical structure and experience, no flammable properties are anticipated if contact with air or water, or no self-heating for liquids, therefore studies were deemed unnecessary.

Justification for classification or non-classification

According to Regulation (EC) No.1272/2008 (CLP) criteria, the measured flash point is above the threshold value of 60°C, therefore the substance is NOT considered as a flammable liquid.

According to UN Globally Harmonised System (GHS) criteria, the measured flash point is above the threshold value of 93°C, therefore the substance is NOT considered as a flammable liquid.
