Description of key information

Not oxidising, EU Method A.17, Angly 2000

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Oxidising properties:
no

Additional information

The oxidising properties of the test material were determined in accordance with the standardised guideline EU Method A.17 using a reduced testing programme. Under the conditions of the test, the test material/cellulose mixtures did not propagate a flame to any appreciable extent. It was therefore not possible to determine a burning rate for the test material for comparison with the 60 % w/w barium nitrate/cellulose reference mixture. The test was considered adequate for assessment of the risk of physical hazards arising from the test material.

The study was performed in line with GLP and an accepted standardised guideline with a high standard of reporting. The study was assigned a reliability score of 1 in accordance with the principles of assessing data quality outlined in Klimisch (1997), and considered suitable for assessment as an accurate reflection of the test material.

The available data are considered to be complete and the conclusion, not oxidising, was taken forward for risk assessment.

Justification for classification or non-classification

In accordance with Annex I, 2.1.4, Regulation EC No. 1272/2008, the test material does not require classification as oxidising as the test material/cellulose mixtures failed to propagate a flame to any appreciable extent. Although the reference substance used in the study was different to that used in the guideline method for classification under CLP, the maximum burning rate of the test material was considerably below the reference substance. The test was therefore considered adequate for assessment of the risk of physical hazards arising from the test material.

In accordance with Directive 2001/59/EC, 2.2.2, the test material does not require classification as oxidising as the test material/cellulose mixtures failed to propagate a flame to any appreciable extent.
