PBT Assessment

If a substance is undergoing PBT/vPvB assessment under the REACH substance evaluation process and is being discussed in ECHA’s PBT Expert Group, this is indicated in the PBT assessment list with the text ‘Under development under SEv’ in the ‘Outcome’ column.

Where relevant, the PBT assessment list also provides further information on the outcome of the informal assessment of the PBT/vPvB properties of substances based on the available information.

One possible outcome of such an assessment is that a substance is considered not to have PBT/vPvB properties.

If the outcome of the assessment is that the substance is considered to have PBT/vPvB properties, confirmation through the formal risk management and decision-making processes under REACH is needed before any regulatory action can be taken due to these properties. The intentions of authorities to submit a dossier to the formal REACH and CLP processes are notified through the Registry of Intentions.

All biocidal active substances have to undergo a formal PBT assessment. You can follow the status of biocides assessments at Biocidal Active Substances page
