Description of key information

In accordance with the General Rules for Adaptation of the Standard Testing Regime (Annexes VII-X) as stated in REACH Annex XI, in the Regualtion (EC) No 1907/2006 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 18 December 2006,  this study is scientifically unjustified. The flammability of liquids is determined on the basis of their flashpoint (in combination with their boiling point), their ability to emit flammable gases upon contact with water and their pyrophoricity. The molecular structure of this 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. Its flammability will therefore be based on flash point and boiling point which indicate that a classification is not required.
