Handbook data considered to be from a trusted source acc. to "ECHA, Guidance on information requirements and chemical safety assessment – Chapter R.7a: Endpoint specific guidance" and therefore, the flash point of 83°C could be regarded as valid. However,

the substance must not be classified as flammable liquid due to the fact that the flash point of the substance is > 60°C.
