Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results:
Category 2 (highly flammable liquids) based on GHS criteria
Conclusions:
The test item Isoamyl nitrite has a flash point of -7.0 °C (lowest, corrected and rounded down to the nearest multiple of 0.5 °C), according to Regulation EC No. 440/2008 Method A.9. Flash Point and DIN EN ISO 13736 (2013).

UN Transport Regulation:
As the test item has a boiling point of 99 °C (lit.) (> 35 °C) and a measured flash point of
-7.0 °C (< 23 °C), it has to be classified in class 3 as flammable liquid of Packaging Group II.

GHS (CLP Regulation EC 1272/2008 Annex 1: 2.6):
As the test item has a boiling point of 99 °C (lit.) (> 35 °C) and a measured flash point of
-7.0 °C (< 23 °C), it has to be classified as highly flammable liquid of category 2 and has to be marked with the warning “H225: highly flammable liquid and vapour”.
