Conclusions:
The test substance is not sensitive to heating and shock.
The substance is NOT classified as explosive according to Directive 67/548/EEC (DSD) criteria.
The test is inconclusive according to Regulation (EC) N°1272/2008 (CLP) criteria.
Executive summary:

Method: The explosive properties were determined based on EU Method A14 , for sensivity towards heating (Koenen test) and shock (BAM fall hammer), under GLP.

Result: ST 03 C 99 was determined not to have explosive properties with regard to thermal and shock sensitivity.

Endpoint:
explosive properties of explosives
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 explosive properties
Justification for type of information:
JUSTIFICATION FOR DATA WAIVING
In accordance with column 2 of REACh Annex VII, the study does not need to be conducted if there are no chemical groups associated with explosive properties present in the molecule. According to Regulation (EC) N°1272/2008 (CLP) criteria and screening procedure (as listed in appendix 6 to the UN Recommendations on the Transport of Dangerous Goods - Manual of Tests and Criteria (6th revised edition, 2015) or in the ECHA endpoint specific guidance on information requirements (R.7a, v6.0, July 2017, §R.7.1.11), NO REACTIVE GROUP was identified.
Then explosive properties are not anticipated, and the acceptance procedure for Class 1 explosives shall not apply, no further testing is required.

Description of key information

Testing for explosive and self-reactive properties waived, based on chemical structure (CLP criteria).
Not explosive with regard to heat or shock sensitivity (experimental; DSD criteria).

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Explosiveness:
non explosive

Additional information

According to the screening procedure described in Regulation (EC) N°1272/2008 (CLP), the structure of the substance does not contain any chemical group associated with explosive or self-reactive properties.

Therefore, no further testing is required.

Moreover, a supporting experimental study for the determination of explosive properties, with regard to sensitivity towards heat and shock (friction not required for liquids), is available. However, this test conducted according to Directive 67/548/EEC (DSD) classification criteria cannot be extrapolated to CLP criteria, as the testing strategy and study design differ significantly. Nevertheless the Koenen tube test is common, and the negative result confirms that the substance is not sensitive to heat.

Justification for classification or non-classification

The test material is NOT classified as explosive according to DSD annex VI criteria, based on experimental results.

The test material is NOT classified as explosive nor self-reactive according to CLP criteria, based on the structural formula.
