Endpoint:
pyrophoric liquids
Data waiving:
study scientifically not necessary / other information available
Justification for data waiving:
the study does not need to be conducted because the substance is known to be stable in contact with air at room temperature for prolonged periods of time (days) and hence, the classification procedure does not need to be applied
other:
Justification for type of information:
JUSTIFICATION FOR DATA WAIVING
- In a statement (see attached justification) it was concluded that the substance has no pyrophoric properties.
- Conditions for storage of this substance: at room temperature (protected from light)








Reason / purpose for cross-reference:
data waiving: supporting information
Endpoint:
substances / mixtures which in contact with water emit flammable gases
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 does not contain metals or metalloids and hence, the classification procedure does not need to be applied
Justification for type of information:
JUSTIFICATION FOR DATA WAIVING
In a statement (see attached justification) it was concluded that the substance is ‘not highly flammable’ in contact with water.
Reason / purpose for cross-reference:
data waiving: supporting information
Endpoint:
self-heating substances / mixtures
Data waiving:
study technically not feasible
Justification for data waiving:
the study does not need to be conducted because the substance is a liquid
Justification for type of information:
Since the substance is not adsorbed onto a large surface, self-heating is not a relevant property for this substance. In general liquids are not classified as self-heating.
Reason / purpose for cross-reference:

Endpoint:
flammable solids
Data waiving:

Justification for data waiving:
the study does not need to be conducted because the substance is a liquid
Justification for type of information:
a flash point study is available

Description of key information

No pyrophoric properties (based on experience in handling and structural features).

Not highly flammable in contact with water (based on structural features).

Self-heating is not a relevant property for this substance. In general liquids are not classified as self-heating.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flammability:
not classified

Additional information

Justification for classification or non-classification

Classification or non-classification according to CLP Regulation (EC) No. 1272/2008:

Not a flammable liquid (flash point is > 60°C).

Not a pyrophoric liquid (the substance lacks functional groups that would imply this hazard)

No classification for the hazard "Substances which in contact with water emits flammable gases' (the substance lacks functional groups that would imply this hazard)

Taken into account its high auto-igntion temperature and since the substance is not a liquid adsorbed onto a large solid, no classification is required for the CLP hazard 'self-heating'.
