Executive summary:

Definition of Oxidising Properties

 

An oxidizing substance is one that, while in itself not necessarily combustible, may cause or contribute to the combustion of other material. Oxidising substances generally act by yielding oxygen; however, those that release active halogens can also react as oxidants. (Ref. 1)

 

Expert Judgement

 

Due to the absence of chemical groups associated with oxidizing properties or other structural alerts the abovementioned substance is not considered to exhibit oxidizing properties.

 

Therefore testing for oxidizing properties does not need to be performed.
