Reference
Endpoint:
flash point of flammable liquids
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
2018-07-19 - 2018-11-14
Reliability:
1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
guideline study
Qualifier:
according to
Guideline:
EU Method A.9 (Flash-Point)
Version / remarks:
Regulation (EC) No. 1907/2006, Council Regulation (EC) No. 440/2008
EC A.9. method (2008) and ISO 3679 (March 2015)
Deviations:
yes
Remarks:
