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 explosive properties

Description of key information

Vanadium oxide sulphate is not explosive.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Explosiveness:
non explosive

Additional information

In accordance with Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006, Annex VII, Section 7.11, Column 2, testing for explosive properties is not considered to be required for vanadium oxide sulphate. It is considered to be “inert” in the context of explosivity, since it is void of any chemical structures commonly associated with explosive properties, such as metal peroxides, peroxo-acid-anions, azides, and halogen oxides. Furthermore, long-term industrial experience in practical handling of vanadium oxide sulphate shows that it is not explosive.

Justification for classification or non-classification

Vanadium oxide sulphate does not need to be classified for explosive properties according to Directive 67/548 EEC and CLP Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 as these are considered non-relevant based on the lack of functional groups.
