Description of key information

Study waived on the basis that the substance is incapable of reacting exothermically with combustible materials

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Oxidising properties:
non oxidising

Additional information

Justification for classification or non-classification

An examination of the chemical structure shows that the test substance contains four chlorine atoms, but these are only bonded to carbon. Consequently, the substance will not possess oxidizing properties and thus will not give rise to highly exothermic reactions when in contact with other substances, particularly flammable ones, in the manner in which recognised oxidizing substances do. As a result, according to Regulation (EC) no. 1907/2006, Annex VII, 7.13, column 2, the study does not need to be conducted if the substance is incapable of reacting exothermically with combustible materials.
