Endpoint:
flammable liquids: obsolete as covered by section 'Flash point'
Data waiving:
study technically not feasible
Justification for data waiving:
the study does not need to be conducted because the substance is a liquid
Endpoint:
substances / mixtures which in contact with water emit flammable gases
Data waiving:
study scientifically not necessary / other information available
Justification for data waiving:
the study does not need to be conducted because the experience in production or handling shows that the substance does not react with water, e.g. the substance is manufactured with water or washed with water
the study does not need to be conducted because the substance is known to be soluble in water to form a stable mixture
other:
Endpoint:
pyrophoric liquids
Data waiving:
study scientifically not necessary / other information available
Justification for data waiving:
the study does not need to be conducted because the substance is known to be stable in contact with air at room temperature for prolonged periods of time (days) and hence, the classification procedure does not need to be applied
other:
Endpoint:
self-heating substances / mixtures
Data waiving:

Description of key information

Flammability:

Obsolete, as covered by endpoint "flash point" for liquids.

Flammability, contact with water:

The study does not need to be conducted because the experience in production or handling shows that the substance does not react with water, e.g. the substance is manufactured with water or washed with water. Furthermore, the study does not need to be conducted because the substance is known to be soluble in water to form a stable mixture. The test material does not contain structural components associated with pyrophoricity and/or flammability on contact with water mentioned in the Guidance on information requirements and chemical safety assessment Chapter R.7a: Endpoint specific guidance, chapter R.7.1.10.3, page 123. Furthermore, experience in handling and use has shown the material is not pyrophoric, nor flammable upon contact with water. Therefore, it can be concluded that the test material exhibit no risk for pyrophoricity and/or flammability on contact with water. No study is required.

Flammability, pyrophoric liquids:

The study is scientifically not necessary, because the substance is known to be stable in contact with air at room temperature for prolonged periods of time (days) and the test material does not contain structural components associated with pyrophoricity mentioned in the Guidance on information requirements and chemical safety assessment Chapter R.7a: Endpoint specific guidance, chapter R.7.1.10.3, page 123. Furthermore, experience in handling and use has shown the material is not pyrophoric, nor flammable upon contact with water. Therefore, it can be concluded that the test material exhibit no risk for pyrophoricity.

Flammability, self-heating substances:

The study is scientifically not necessary, because the substance is a liquid. Furthermore, the study need not be conducted because the substance is known to be stable in contact with air at room temperature for prolonged periods of time (days) and as, concluded from structural analysis, and experience in handling and use, the material is not pyrophoric, nor flammable upon contact with water.
