Reference
Endpoint:
explosive properties of explosives
Data waiving:
study scientifically not necessary / other information available
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
Justification for type of information:
JUSTIFICATION FOR DATA WAIVING


The following statement has been reported by an expert:

A test substance is considered explosive when it can react to produce very rapid increases in temperature or pressure.
 
The molecular structures of the main constituents in the test substance do not contain chemical groups which are associated with explosive properties.The purity of the test substance is to be regarded as 100%. The molecular structures of impurities were therefor not taken into account.
 
In conclusion, PEMP product has no explosive properties.
