Description of key information

- The known structure does not suggest White liquor to present a danger of oxidation under the conditions described in EC 440/2008 A.21, and classification is not required. 
- White liquor is always manufactured as an aqueous solution of alkaline inorganic salts, and none of these salts, in wet or dry form, are classifiable as oxidising according to the C&L rules.
- Data waiving is based on the rules in Column 2 of Annex VII (7.13) in the REACH regualtion stating that no test is required if the substance cannot react exothermically with combustible materials e.g. according to its chemical structure.
