Endpoint:
oxidising liquids
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 contains oxygen or halogen atoms which are chemically bonded only to carbon or hydrogen and hence, the classification procedure does not need to be applied
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 the substance is incapable of reacting exothermically with combustible materials, for example on the basis of the chemical structure. According to Regulation (EC) N°1272/2008 (CLP) criteria (Annex I §2.13.4./2.14.4., or as listed in the ECHA endpoint specific guidance on information requirements (R.7a, v4.1, October 2015, §R.7.1.13)), the very major component (cineole) contains oxygen, but this element is chemically bonded only to carbon (especially not bonded to nitrogen or other oxygen); the two other major components (limonene, alpha-pinene) do not contain electronegative atoms; minor components are structurally similar compounds, so should exhibit no potential either. Then oxidising properties are unlikely for both qualities of eucalyptus oil, and the classification procedure for oxidising liquids shall not apply, no further testing is required.
