The test guideline EC-A 14 refers to the UN-Manual of Tests and Criteria and Bretherick’s – Handbook of Reactive Chemical Hazards. The structural formula of the test item (see page 9) contains none of the functional groups quoted in ‘Recommendations On The Transport Of Dangerous Goods – Manual of Tests and Criteria’ (fourth revised edition, appendix 6, table A 6.1) or ‘Bretherick’s – Handbook of Reactive Chemical Hazards’ (6th Edition, Volume 2, p 128 ff) which may indicate explosive properties.

Interpretation of results:
non explosive
Executive summary:

It can be concluded by expert judgement that the test item is not explosive. The determination according to EC Guideline A 14 is not necessary (Currenta, 2009).

Description of key information

It can be concluded by expert judgement that the test substance is not explosive. The determination according to EC Guideline A 14 is not necessary (Currenta, 2009).

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Explosiveness:
non explosive

Additional information

Justification for classification or non-classification

The test item does not need to be classified as the test according to the EU-method A.14 does not provide evidence for explosive properties.
