Reference
Endpoint:
oxidising liquids
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:
The substance does not contain the elements fluorine or chlorine. While the substance contains oxygen, it is chemically bonded only to carbon atoms. According to Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006, Annex VII, 7.13 Oxidising properties, column 2: The study does not need to be conducted if the substance is incapable of reacting exothermically with combustible materials, for example on the basis of the chemical structure (e.g. organic substances not containing oxygen or halogen atoms and these elements are not chemically bonded to nitrogen or oxygen). According to the additional criteria for classification under Regulation (EC) No.1272/2008, Annex I, part 2,2.13.4, if the molecule does not contain oxygen, fluorine or chlorine, or contains these atoms only bonded to carbon or hydrogen, then testing is not required. The available data are considered reliable and suitable for classification. As a result, this substance does not meet the criteria for classification under Regulation (EC) No. 1272/2008.

Oxidising properties:
non oxidising

Additional information

The substance does not contain the elements fluorine or chlorine. While the substance contains oxygen it is chemically bonded only to carbon atoms. According to Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006, Annex VII, 7.13 Oxidising properties, column 2: The study does not need to be conducted if the substance is incapable of reacting exothermically with combustible materials, for example on the basis of the chemical structure (e.g. organic substances not containing oxygen or halogen atoms and these elements are not chemically bonded to nitrogen or oxygen).

Justification for classification or non-classification

According to the additional criteria for classification under Regulation (EC) No. 1272/2008, Annex I, part 2, 2.13.4, if the molecule does not contain oxygen, fluorine or chlorine, or contains these atoms only bonded to carbon or hydrogen, then testing is not required. The available data are considered reliable and suitable for classification. As a result, this substance does not meet the criteria for classification under Regulation (EC) No. 1272/2008.
