Administrative data

Endpoint:
flammability
Type of information:
migrated information: read-across based on grouping of substances (category approach)
Adequacy of study:
key study
Reliability:
2 (reliable with restrictions)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
other: While all testing indicates this is accurate and reliable, it is acknowledged that it was obtained by read-across.
