Description of key information

According to REACH Annex VII, column 2, a study on oxidizing properties needs not to be carried out, if the test item -based on its chemical structure- is unable to react exothermically with flammable substances. This is the case for test item D-Panthenol acc. to the requirements in the UN Recommendations on the Transport of Dangerous Goods (Manual of Tests and Criteria, 4th revised edition, 2003, Appendix 6, "Orange Book"), since the oxygen atoms of this molecule all are bound to carbon atoms. Furthermore the D-Panthenol molecule does not contain chlorine or fluorine atoms. This waiver justification is based on a read across on a Klimisch-1-rated expert statement prepared for DL-Panthenol by Harlan Laboratories Ltd., 2009.

Additional information

Justification for classification or non-classification

Based on the structure of the molecule, D-Panthenol was not classified as oxidising according to Directive 67/548/EEC (DSD) and Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 (CLP, GHS).
