JUSTIFICATION FOR DATA WAIVING
In accordance with section 2 of REACh Annex XI, flammability studies relevant for classification criteria do not apply to liquids. Please refer to flash point under 4.11. The study does not need to be conducted because the substance is a liquid. In accordance with Section 1 of REACH Annex XI testing does not appear scientifically necessary. The flammability of liquids is determined on basis of their flash point in combination with their boiling point. The boiling range of the test substance was determined to be 158-210 °C at 1034 hPa. The flash point of the test substance was measured according to ASTM D6450 method, using a closed cup apparatus. Determination was performed in triplicate, and the mean value of 47°C was retained. According to Regulation (EC) No.1272/2008 criteria, the measured flash point lies between the threshold values of 23 and 60°C, therefore the substance is classified as FLAMMABLE LIQUID category 3 (H226).

Description of key information

Rosemary oil has a flash point of 47°C. According to Regulation (EC) No.1272/2008 criteria, the measured flash point lies between the threshold values of 23 and 60°C, therefore the substance is classified as FLAMMABLE LIQUID Category 3 (H226). As the substance is a liquid, the relevant test for flammable properties is the flashpoint measurement. Based on the chemical structure of the major components and experience, no flammable properties are anticipated if contact with air or water, therefore specific studies were deemed unnecessary.
