Justification for classification or non-classification

The gaseous nature of the substance precludes the conductance of conventional skin sensitisation studies in animals. Therefore classification according to EU Directive 67/548/EEC and EU Classification, Labelling and Packaging of Substances and Mixtures (CLP) Regulation (EC) No. 1272/2008 is not applicable.
