Description of key information

In accordance with section 1 of REACH Annex XI, the study does not need to be conducted as:
(a) No flammability in contact with water: The substance contains no metals or metalloids and therefore will not release flammable gases in contact with water
(b) No pyrophoric properties: Experience in production or handling; substance is known to be stable at room temperature
(c) Not a flammable solid: On approach of an ignition source, a short burning may be expected, however, due to the low melting point, a self-sustaining combustion without supply of further energy is to be excluded. Therefore, a classification as flammable solid can be ruled out. Further, due to the low melting point, self-heating behavior can be excluded.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flammability:
non flammable

Additional information

Justification for classification or non-classification

p-Cresol is not a readily combustible solid, no pyrophoric property, does not emit flammable gases in contact with water ans is not a flammable solid. Hence no classification according to both Directive 67/548/EEC and GHS (Regulation EC 1272/2008) is required.
