Interpretation of results:
Category 2 (oxidising solids) based on GHS criteria
Conclusions:
On the basis of the test results and according to the criteria specified in the Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 (CLP-/GHS-Regulation) ruthenium-(IV)-oxide is an oxidising solid of Category 2.
Executive summary:

This is a guideline experimental study and is not GLP compliant, but is otherwise adequate for assessment. On the basis of the test results and according to the criteria specified in the Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 (CLP-/GHS-Regulation) ruthenium-(IV)-oxide is an oxidising solid of Category 2.

Description of key information

On the basis of the test results and according to the criteria specified in the Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 (CLP-/GHS-Regulation) ruthenium(IV)oxide is an oxidising solid of Category 2.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Oxidising properties:
yes

Additional information

Michael-Schulz (2011) is a non-GLP study, following UN method O.1 and is considered to be adequate for assessment of this endpoint. On the basis of the test results and according to the criteria specified in the Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 (CLP-/GHS-Regulation) ruthenium (IV) oxide is an oxidising solid of Category 2.

Justification for classification or non-classification

On the basis of the test results and according to the criteria specified in the Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 (CLP-/GHS-Regulation) ruthenium-(IV)-oxide is an oxidising solid of Category 2.
