Description of key information

In accordance with Annex XI and point 7.10, Column 2, Annex VII of Regulation 1907/2006 the performance of this study is scientifically unnecessary. 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 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 flash point study indicate that the substance is a flammable liquid. On this basis, 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) are omitted.
