explosive properties of explosives
Data waiving:
study scientifically not necessary / other information available
Justification for data waiving:
the study does not need to be conducted because there are no chemical groups present in the molecule which are associated with explosive properties

Description of key information

No study has been performed on magnesium bis(dihydrogenorthophosphate) for the endpoint 'explosiveness'. An adaptation from the standard testing regime is justified on the following basis:
According to the guidance on information requirements and chemical safety assessment Chapter R.7a section 7.1.11, the first step of the screening procedure is to examine the chemical structure and check for the presence of groups associated with explosive properties. If the substance does not contain any groups associated with explosivity then a negative result is likely. An expert review of the substance itself and available data concludes that magnesium bis(dihydrogenorthophosphate) is incapable of rapid decomposition with evolution of gases or release of heat and therefore it is considered that magnesium bis(dihydrogenorthophosphate) does not present a risk of explosion and as such further testing for explosive properties is therefore not scientifically justified.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

non explosive

Additional information

Justification for classification or non-classification

In accordance with Regulation (EC) No. 1272/2008 (EU CLP), magnesium bis(dihydrogenorthophosphate) is not considered to be explosive and is therefore not classified as such.
