Description of key information

Non oxidising.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Oxidising properties:
no

Additional information

According to the REACH Regulation (EC 1907/2006), Annex VII, Column 2, 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 (e.g. organic substances not containing oxygen or halogen atoms and these elements are not chemically bonded to nitrogen or oxygen, or inorganic substances not containing oxygen or halogen atoms).

The substance contains NO2 groups, however, it is deemed not to be potentially oxidising based on: derived oxygen balance value and known experience in handling and use.

Justification for classification or non-classification

According to the CLP Regulation (EC 1272/2008) oxidising solid means a solid substance or mixture which, while in itself is not necessarily combustible, may cause or contribute to the combustion of other material, by yelding oxygen.

Solvent Red 008 is not classified because is incapable of reacting exothermically with combustible materials.
