Additional information

Justification for classification or non-classification

From a GLP study in accordance with the EC A.17 test method, NMMO was concluded to have oxidising properties (Younis, 2012).

DSD: NMMO should be classified as oxidising (O symbol) with risk phrase R8: Contact with combustible material may cause fire.

CLP: in general, substances that are classified as oxidising solids according to DSD will also meet the criteria for GHS classification according to CLP. However, assignment of a hazard category is not possible based on the EC A.17 test. As NMMO has no exposive properties, category 1 is anticipated to result in over-classification. Therefore, it is proposed to classify NMMO as a category 2 oxidising solid with hazard statement H272: May intensify fire; oxidiser.
