Description of key information

Examination of the chemical structure of the substance confirms that it contains a halogen and an alkali metal. However, the sodium ion (Na+) is a constituent of a stable ionic structure that does not contain oxygen. The halogen atom is not part of a characteristic structural group of concern for oxidising properties, and nitrogen is absent from the structure. Sodium hydrogen fluoride has a harmonised classification according to Annex VI of Regulation (EC) 1272/2008 [the CLP Regulation], but it is not classified for oxidising or explosive properties. It can be predicted that the substance does not possess oxidising properties, or contribute to the combustion of other materials.
It is therefore concluded that sodium hydrogen fluoride is unlikely to be an oxidising substance.

Justification for classification or non-classification

Sodium hydrogen fluoride has a harmonised classification according to Annex VI of Regulation (EC) 1272/2008 [the CLP Regulation], but it is not classified for oxidising or explosive properties. It can be predicted that the substance does not possess oxidising properties, or contribute to the combustion of other materials.
