Endpoint:
self-heating substances / mixtures
Data waiving:
study scientifically not necessary / other information available
Justification for data waiving:
the study does not need to be conducted because the substance is known to be stable in contact with air at room temperature for prolonged periods of time (days) and hence, the classification procedure does not need to be applied
other:
Endpoint:
substances / mixtures which in contact with water emit flammable gases
Data waiving:
study scientifically not necessary / other information available
Justification for data waiving:
the study does not need to be conducted because the experience in production or handling shows that the substance does not react with water, e.g. the substance is manufactured with water or washed with water
the study does not need to be conducted because the substance is known to be soluble in water to form a stable mixture

Description of key information

The substance is neither a flammable gas, a pyrophoric gas nor a chemically unstable gases.

The substance is not used as an aerosol.

The substance is not flammable (it is combustible).

The substance has no pyrophoric properties and does not liberate flammable gases in contact with water.

The substance is not a self-heating substance or mixture.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flammability:
not classified

Additional information

The substance does not need to be classified as a flammable gas, a pyrophoric gas or a chemically unstable gases because substance is a liquid.

The substance does not need to be classified for aerosols because the substance is not used as a aerosol (no receptacles containing a gas compressed) and is only used in liquid sate.

The substance is not considered to be classified as flammable liquids as there are a flash point above 93°C.

The substance does not need to be classified as flammable solids because the substance is a liquid.

Based on chemical structure pyrophoric properties and flammability in contact with water are not to be expected.

Based on chemical structure and on practical experience self-heating properties are not to be expected.

Justification for classification or non-classification

DSD (67/548/EEC): Based on the chemical structure, the flash point and taking into account the provisions laid down in Directive 67/548/EEC the substance is not considered to be classified as extremely flammable, highly flammable, liberates flammable gases in contact with water, spontaneously flammable in air or flammable.

 

GHS/CLP (Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008): Based on the chemical structure, the physical state, the substance use, the flash point and taking into account the provisions laid down in Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 the substance is not considered to be classified as flammable gases, aerosols, flammable liquids, flammable solids, pyrophoric liquids, pyrophoric solids, self heating substances or mixtures or substance or mixture which in contact with water emits flammable gases.
