Description of key information

Oxidising properties: not oxidizing

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

In accordance with column 2 of REACH Annex VII, the Oxidising properties study (required in section 7.13) does not need to be conducted as the substance is incapable of reacting exothermically with combustible materials on the basis of the chemical structure.

The material does not contain any functional groups quoted in UN Manual of Tests and Criteria, 2008 ( ISBN 92-1-139087-7, Fourth Revised Edition, Appendix 6, Chapter 6) which may indicate oxidizing properties. Therefore, it can be concluded by expert judgement that this substance has no oxidizing properties in the sense of Annex A 21 of (EC) No 440/2008 .

Justification:

•The substance does not contain chemical groups associated with oxidizing properties (see guidance ‚guidance on information requirements and chemical safety assessment‘ section R 7.1.13.3 table R 7.1-29 p. 141)

•According to UN Recommendations on the Transport of Dangerous Goods, Manual of Tests and Criteria, fourth revised edition, appendix 6, chapter 6, the substance contains oxygen which is chemically bonded only to carbon or hydrogen

Justification for classification or non-classification

There is no evidence to suggest that the substance should be classified for this endpoint.
