oxidising liquids
Data waiving:
study scientifically not necessary / other information available
Justification for data waiving:
the study does not need to be conducted because the organic substance does not contain oxygen or halogen atoms and hence, the classification procedure does not need to be applied

Waiver

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

According to Regulation (EC) No. 1907/2006, Annex VII, Column 2, 7.13, a study on the oxidizing properties of the substance does not need to be conducted if     the substance is incapable of reacting exothermically with combustible materials on the basis of chemical structure.  According to the Technical Report on            Development of an Enhanced Hazard Classification System for Oxidizing Chemicals (Ed., Buc, EC and Hoffman, DJ) by the National Fire Protection Foundation       (April, 2006, Quincy, MA, U. S. A.), oxidizing chemicals are characterized as having specific oxygen or halide arrangements in their chemical structure, which     can undergo  oxidation/reduction reactions.    As this molecule contains no functional groups associated with oxidizing properties (nitrate, nitrite, organic nitro, fluorodinitro, metal oxides, N-halogen derivative, difluoroamino derivatives, or oxohalogen derivatives),  it is not considered as an oxidizing chemical, and is not expected to increase the combustion of other        substances. Hence, the criteria for this adaptation are met
