Endpoint:
substances / mixtures which in contact with water emit flammable gases
Data waiving:
study scientifically not necessary / other information available
Justification for data waiving:
the study does not need to be conducted because the experience in production or handling shows that the substance does not react with water, e.g. the substance is manufactured with water or washed with water
Endpoint:
flammable solids
Data waiving:
study technically not feasible
Justification for data waiving:
the study does not need to be conducted because the substance is a liquid
Endpoint:
pyrophoric liquids
Data waiving:
study scientifically not necessary / other information available
Justification for data waiving:
the study does not need to be conducted because the substance is known to be stable in contact with air at room temperature for prolonged periods of time (days) and hence, the classification procedure does not need to be applied

Description of key information

In accordance with section 2 of REACH Annex XI, the flammability (solids) study (required in section 7.10 of Annex VII) as it is not technically feasible. The substance is liquid. Therefore flash point is the more appropriate study.

In accordance with section 1 of REACH Annex XI, the flammability (pyrophoric properties and flammability on contact with water) studies (required in section 7.10 of Annex VII) do not need to be conducted because the substance is known to be stable in contact with air at room temperature for prolonged periods of time and experience in production or handling shows that the substance does not react with water.

Key value for chemical safety assessment
