Description of key information

No study has been performed on disodium hydrogenorthophosphate for the endpoint 'explosiveness'. An adaptation from the standard testing regime is justified on the following basis:
According to the guidance on information requirements and chemical safety assessment Chapter R.7a section 7.1.11, the first step of the screening procedure is to examine the chemical structure and check for the presence of groups associated with explosive properties. If the substance does not contain any groups associated with explosivity then a negative result is likely. An expert review of the substance itself and available data concludes that disodium hydrogenorthophosphate is incapable of rapid decomposition with evolution of gases or release of heat and therefore it is considered that disodium hydrogenorthophosphate does not present a risk of explosion and as such further testing for explosive properties is not scientifically justified.
