Applicant's summary and conclusion

Conclusions:
Based on the chemical structure of the test material and experience in safe handling and use, the substance is considered not to have explosive properties. The result for the explosive properties has been predicted negative. The test material does not meet the criteria for classification according to EU classification system.
Executive summary:

Explosive properties were determined using methods specified in Commission Directive 92/69/EEC (which constitutes Annex V of Council Directive 67/548/EEC) (A14).

The explosiveness of the test material has been predicted negative. The test material does not meet the criteria for classification according to EU classification system.
