Endpoint:
flash point of flammable liquids
Data waiving:
study technically not feasible
Justification for data waiving:
the study does not need to be conducted because the flash point is only relevant to liquids and low melting point solids
Justification for type of information:
In accordance with Section 2 of REACH Annex XI, information requirement section 7.9, this study does not need to be conducted based on the physical state of the substance.  According to ECHA guidance, flash point is only relevant to substances that are liquid at room temperature. As the substance is a solid with a high melting point (no melting point could be detected until 350 °C, as the thermic decomposition of the test substance started around 300 °C), the study is waived.
