Administrative data

Endpoint:
flammable solids
Data waiving:
study scientifically not necessary / other information available
Justification for data waiving:
the study does not need to be conducted because the experience in production or handling shows that the substance does not react with water, e.g. the substance is manufactured with water or washed with water
other:
Justification for type of information:
In accordance with REACH Annex XI this study is scientifically unjustified. The substance exists under liquid, paste and solid (dried powder) states. As the water is not necessary to the stability, the powder is the reference state for registration. Concerning the powder, water reactivity is firmly excluded as the powder is produced by drying of the water extract. Presence of chemical groups indicating potential pyrophoric properties is not expected in a Yeast extract (biological origin; UVCB). Furthermore, handling of the substance (incl. large experience of use in food additives) indicates no inflammation.
