Key value for chemical safety assessment

not classified

Additional information

Justification for classification or non-classification

In the reliable key study conducted in accordance with GLP using the EU A.10 method, it was determined that the substance is not highly flammable under the conditions of the test. It was also observed by handling the substance for the purpose of conducting experiments for regulatory requirements did not reveal the development of flammable gases in contact with water nor did the substance exhibit pyrophoric properties. Based on this evidence, classification under the CLP regulation (EU 1272/2008 ,as amended) is not warranted for these endpoints.
