Administrative data

oxidising solids
Data waiving:
study scientifically not necessary / other information available
Justification for data waiving:
the study does not need to be conducted because the organic substance contains oxygen or halogen atoms which are chemically bonded only to carbon or hydrogen and hence, the classification procedure does not need to be applied
Justification for type of information:
Expert statement on oxidizing properties
The Ascorbyl Palmitate molecule contains oxygen which is chemically bonded only to carbon and hydrogen. Thus according to 1 it can be concluded beyond a reasonable doubt that Ascorbyl Palmitate is not an oxidizing solid capable of causing fire or enhancing the risk of fire when in contact with combustible material. Therefore Ascorbyl Palmitate is not to be classified as an oxidizing solid and no experimental determination according to the EC test guideline A.21 has to be performed. Nevertheless, this judgment is with respect to classification and does not necessarily mean that any processing hazards can be excluded.
