Reference
Endpoint:
flammable liquids: obsolete as covered by section 'Flash point'
Data waiving:
study technically not feasible
Justification for data waiving:
the study does not need to be conducted because the substance is a liquid
Reason / purpose for cross-reference:
reference to other study
Specific details on test material used for the study:
EssentÍal oil of Summer Savory/batch No. SSVI.ES.sample
Date of manufacture: 08.01.2019
Expration date of the batch: 08.01.2021
UVCB substance;
Purity test date: 18.01.2019
Interpretation of results:
other: Flammable Liquid Category 4 according to UN Globally Harmonised System (GHS)
Conclusions:
The substance is a liquid with a flash point of 62°C (experimental).
Justification for classification or non-classification:
The flash point of the substance is higher than 60 °C so it is considered as non-flammable according to the criteria of CLP Regulation (Regulation EC 1272/2008).
The flashpoint of the substance being higher than 60°C but lower than 93 °C , the substance is considered as a Flammable Liquid Category 4 according to UN Globally Harmonised System (GHS).
Based on the chemical structure of the major constituents of the substance and experience in handling and use of the substance, no flammable properties are anticipated if contact with air or water, therefore studies were deemed unnecessary in accordance with section 1 of REACh Annex XI.
Finally considering that the substance is a liquid, no classification as self-heating substance is anticipated.
Executive summary:

The substance is a liquid with a flash point of 62°C (experimental). A reliable experimental study has been conducted.

Justification for classification or non-classification:

The flash point of the substance is higher than 60 °C so it is considered as non-flammable according to the criteria of CLP Regulation (Regulation EC 1272/2008).

The flashpoint of the substance being higher than 60°C but lower than 93 °C , the substance is considered as a Flammable Liquid Category 4 according to UN Globally Harmonised System (GHS).

Based on the chemical structure of the major constituents of the substance and experience in handling and use of the substance, no flammable properties are anticipated if contact with air or water, therefore studies were deemed unnecessary in accordance with section 1 of REACh Annex XI.

Finally considering that the substance is a liquid, no classification as self-heating substance is anticipated.

Description of key information

Flash point = 62°C (experimental)

The test item is NOT classified as Flammable Liquid according to Regulation (EC)1272/2008 (CLP regulation).

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flammability:
not classified

Additional information

As the substance is a liquid, the relevant test for flammable properties is the flash point measurement.

A reliable experimental study is presented under endpoint 4.11.

Justification for classification or non-classification

According to REACH guidance R7a, the flammability of liquids is determined on basis of their flashpoint (in combination with their boiling point), their ability to emit flammable gases upon contact with water and their pyrophoricity. Considering the fact that the flash point measured is higher than 60 °C (see section 4.11), the substance is considered as non-flammable (Regulation (EC) 1272/2008).

The flashpoint of the substance being higher than 60°C but lower than 93 °C (see section 4.11), the substance is considered as a Flammable Liquid Category 4 according to UN Globally Harmonised System (GHS).

Based on the chemical structure of the major constituents of the substance and experience in handling and use of the substance, no flammable properties are anticipated if contact with air or water, therefore studies were deemed unnecessary in accordance with section 1 of REACh Annex XI.

Finally considering that the substance is a liquid, no classification as self-heating substance is anticipated.
