Endpoint:
oxidising solids
Data waiving:
study scientifically not necessary / other information available
Justification for data waiving:
the study does not need to be conducted because there are no chemical groups present in the molecule which are associated with oxidising properties and hence, the classification procedure does not need to be applied
Endpoint:
oxidising properties, other
Type of information:
not specified
Adequacy of study:
supporting study
Reliability:
4 (not assignable)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
secondary literature
Remarks:
Data comes from a secondary source, accepted as a reliable data source; however does not refer to the parent substance nor directly to the property of concern under the present point, therefore reliability cannot be granted. Read-across is justified based on chemical similarity.

Used in flame retardants.

Conclusions:
No oxidising hazard anticipated, based on use as a flame retardant.
Executive summary:

Two reference handbooks, also cited in a reference database, state that the substance is used as a flame retardant.

Endpoint:
oxidising properties, other
Type of information:
read-across from supporting substance (structural analogue or surrogate)
Adequacy of study:
supporting study
Reason / purpose for cross-reference:
read-across source
Conclusions:
From use of analogue, no oxidising properties are anticipated for the target substance.
Executive summary:

According to literature, analogue aluminium hydroxide is used in flame retardants.

Description of key information

Low potential based on chemical structure.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Oxidising properties:
no

Additional information

Based on the chemical structure, no oxidising properties are anticipated.

Moreover, supporting literature data indicates that an analogue substance is used in flame retardants, therefore as a weight of evidence, it should not enhance fire.

Justification for classification or non-classification

The chemical structure fulfills the exemption criteria of Regulation (EC) No.1272/2008 (CLP).
