Description of key information

Due to the structural composition of the substance it is not considered to be oxidising. 

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Oxidising properties:
non oxidising

Additional information

Due to the structural composition of the substance it is not considered to be oxidising. The substance does not contain any of the components listed in “Endpoint specific guidance R.7.1.13.3 table R.7.1-29”. According to “Endpoint specific guidance R.7.1.13.4" no experimental testing has to be conducted if the substance due to structural composition is considered not to be oxidising.

Justification for classification or non-classification

Potassium formate is incapable of reacting exothermically with combustible material, therefore it is classified as non oxidising.
