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 oxidising properties and hence, the classification procedure does not need to be applied

Description of key information

Oxidizing Properties Justification For data Waiving (ECHA TGD ref 7.1.13)    From the compositional description and the structural formula given, it can be concluded that this substance O-isobutyl ethylthiocarbamate  does not exhibit oxidizing properties (will not cause or contribute to the combustion of other materials by virtue of its own inherent oxidation or reduction potential). There are no functional groups or other structural alerts present that would indicate that this substance would promote oxidation and thus should not be classified as dangerous according to the criteria for evaluating oxidizing properties. Furthermore, this is confirmed by long term handling experience.  According “ANNEX VII - STANDARD INFORMATION REQUIREMENTS FOR SUBSTANCES MANUFACTURED OR IMPORTED IN QUANTITIES OF ONE TONNE OR MORE” the study does not need to be conducted if the substance is incapable of reacting exothermically with combustible materials, on the basis of the chemical structure. This product  no has oxidizing properties.  An oxidizing substance is one that, while in itself not necessarily combustible, may cause or contribute to the combustion of other material. Oxidising substances generally act by yielding oxygen; however, those that release active halogens can also react as oxidants. (Ref. 1)     Due to the absence of chemical groups associated with oxidizing properties or other structural alerts this substance is not considered to exhibit oxidizing properties.     Therefore testing for oxidizing properties does not need to be performed.   Ref. 1) European Chemicals Agency (ECHA), Guidance for the implementation of REACH, Guidance on information requirements and chemical safety assessment, Chapter R.7a: Endpoint specific guidance, May 2008, pages 138-141.
