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

Description of key information

Explosiveness: non explosive (Expert judgement/Prediction based on molecular structure)

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Explosiveness:
non explosive

Additional information

According to the guidance on information requirements and chemical safety assessment Chapter R.7a section 7.1.11, the first step of the screening procedure is to examine the chemical structure and check for the presence of groups associated with explosive properties. If the substance does not contain any groups associated with explosivity then a negative result is likely. An expert review of the substance itself and available data concludes that teh susbtance is incapable of rapid decomposition with evolution of gases or release of heat and therefore it is considered that it does not present a risk of explosion and as such further testing for explosive properties is therefore not scientifically justified.

Justification for classification or non-classification

Based on assessment of the molecular structure (presence of chemical groups associated with explosive properties) and expert judgement, the substance is considered to be non explosive for the purpose of classification and labelling according to Regulation (EC) No. 1272/2008 (CLP).
