Description of key information

The chemical structure of the test item was assessed and the resulting expert statement concludes that the test item does not have oxidising properties (EU Method A.21).

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Oxidising properties:
no

Additional information

Oxidising properties of the test item were assessed using a procedure designed to be compatible with Method A.21 Oxidising Properties (Liquids) of Commission Regulation (EC) No 440/2008 of 30 May 2008. No structural alerts were found within the chemical structure of the test item and the result for the explosive properties has been predicted negative.

Justification for classification or non-classification

In accordance with Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006, Annex VII, Section 7.13, Column 2, oxidising properties do not need to be investigated experimentally if there are no chemical groups associated with oxidising properties present in the molecule. The structure of the test item has been considered using a method designed to be compatible with EU Method A.21 and a valid and conclusive expert statement is available. As a result, classification of the test material as oxidising under the terms of Regulation (EC) No 1972/2008 is not required.
