Endpoint:
oxidising solids
Data waiving:
study scientifically not necessary / other information available
Justification for data waiving:
the study does not need to be conducted because there are no chemical groups present in the molecule which are associated with oxidising properties and hence, the classification procedure does not need to be applied

Description of key information

Zinc dipropionate has no oxidising properties.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Oxidising properties:
non oxidising

Additional information

According to Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006, Annex VII, section 7.13, column 2, the study does not need to be conducted if the substance is incapable of reacting exothermically with combustible materials, for example on the basis of the chemical structure (e. g. inorganic substances not containing oxygen or halogen atoms). Zinc dipropionate does not contain a surplus of oxygen or any structural groups known to be correlated with a tendency to react exothermally with combustible material. Derogation from testing is hereby applied for.

Justification for classification or non-classification

There are no chemical groups present in zinc dipropionate which are associated with oxidising properties.

According to the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (GHS) of the United Nations, zinc dipropionate does not have to be classified for oxidising properties. According to the criteria of REGULATION (EC) No 1272/2008 and its subsequent adaptations, zinc diropionate does not have to be classified and has no obligatory labelling requirement for oxidising properties.
