GUIDELINE

Explosive properties were predicted using a procedure designed to be compatible with Method A.14 Explosive Properties of Commission Regulation (EC) No 440/2008 of 30 May 2008.

CONCLUSION

Based on the chemical structure of the test item the result for explosive properties has been predicted negative.

Description of key information

The chemical structure of the test item was assessed and the resulting expert statement concludes that the test item does not have explosive properties (EU Method A.14).

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Explosiveness:
non explosive

Additional information

Explosive properties of the test item were assessed using a procedure designed to be compatible with Method A.14 Explosive Properties of Commission Regulation (EC) No 440/2008 of 30 May 2008. No structural alerts were found within the chemical structure of the test item and the result for the explosive properties has been predicted negative.

Justification for classification or non-classification

In accordance with Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006, Annex VII, Section 7.11, Column 2, explosive properties do not need to be investigated experimentally if there are no chemical groups associated with explosive properties present in the molecule. The structure of the test item has been considered using a method designed to be compatible with EU Method A.14 and a valid and conclusive expert statement is available. As a result, classification of the test material as explosive under the terms of Regulation (EC) No 1972/2008 is not required.
