1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
other: Guideline study reliable without restrictions
Reason / purpose for cross-reference:
reference to same study
Qualifier:
according to guideline

no
Contact with:
other: not applicable
Sample tested:
other: Expert assessment
Parameter:
other: Chemical structure
Remarks on result:
other: Predicted negative

The test material is inorganic and does not contain oxygen of halogens. Therefore, the result for oxidising properties was predicted negative.

Interpretation of results:
other: no oxidising properties
Remarks:
Migrated information
Conclusions:
Based on the chemical structure of the test material, the result for the oxidising properties was predicted negative.

Description of key information

According to the provisions of EU method A.17 method,  the test substance was assessed as not oxidising by expert judgement.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Oxidising properties:
non oxidising

Additional information

Both calcium oxide and calcium carbonate are assessed to be non-oxidising based on structure. On this basis all grades of calcium oxide may be considered to be non-oxidising, irrespective of the calcium carbonate content.

Justification for classification or non-classification

According to the provisions of EU method A.17 method, the test substance was assessed as not oxidising by expert judgement.The structure of calcium carbonate was assessed for chemical groups that would indicate oxidising properties and was found to contain no such groups. On this basis all grades of calcium oxide may be considered to be non-oxidising, irrespective of the calcium carbonate content.
