Additional information

Justification for classification or non-classification

Due to the flash point of 86°C, m-cresol is not a flammable liquid, has no pyrophoric property, and does not emit flammable gases in contact with water. Hence no classification according to both Directive 67/548/EEC and GHS (Regulation EC 1272/2008) is required.
