Description of key information

 An explosiveness study with the substance tert-butyl peracetate was waived as the substance is classified as Organic Peroxide Type C and not as Organic Peroxide Type B.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

non explosive

Additional information

Tert-butyl peracetate has no explosive properties because it is not classified as Organic Peroxide Type B (reference CLP regulations and UN Recommendations on the Transport of Dangerous Goods, 17th revised edition, Section See also ECHA guidance on the application of the CLP criteria, section 2.14.) Tert-butyl peracetate is classified as organic peroxide Type C. The classification of organic peroxides into one of the seven categories of “Types A to G” is given in decision logic Figure 2.15.1 of CLP, based on the test series A to H, as described in the Part II of the UN-MTC. See endpoint 4.13 Flammability.

Justification for classification or non-classification

According to Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 (CLP) tert-butyl peracetate is classified as Organic Peroxide Type C with H242 (heating may cause a fire).
