Description of key information

Oxidizing Properties Justification For data Waiving (ECHA TGD ref 7.1.13) From the compositional description and the structural formula given, it can be concluded that this substance CAS no.:2956-12-9, (EINECS)220-977-9does not exhibit oxidizing properties (will not cause or contribute to the combustion of other materials by virtue of its own inherent oxidation or reduction potential). There are no functional groups or other structural alerts present that would indicate that this substance would promote oxidation and thus should not be classified as dangerous according to the criteria for evaluating oxidizing properties. Furthermore, this is confirmed by long term handling experience. According “ANNEX VII - STANDARD INFORMATION REQUIREMENTS FOR SUBSTANCES MANUFACTURED OR IMPORTED IN QUANTITIES OF ONE TONNE OR MORE” the study does not need to be conducted if the substance is incapable of reacting exothermically with combustible materials, on the basis of the chemical structure. The substance contains oxygen chemically bonded only to carbon. This product no has oxidizing properties. An oxidizing substance is one that, while in itself not necessarily combustible, may cause or contribute to the combustion of other material. Oxidising substances generally act by yielding oxygen; however, those that release active halogens can also react as oxidants. (Ref. 1) Due to the absence of chemical groups associated with oxidizing properties or other structural alerts this substance is not considered to exhibit oxidizing properties. Therefore testing for oxidizing properties does not need to be performed.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Oxidising properties:
non oxidising

Additional information

Oxygen, fluorine or chlorine atoms is not included in the molecule. (Although molecular structures is not specified, the mentioned fact is obvious from various data)

Justification for classification or non-classification

Due to the absence of chemical groups associated with oxidizing properties or other structural alerts this substance is not considered to exhibit oxidizing properties. Therefore testing for oxidizing properties does not need to be performed.
