PBT status:
the substance is not PBT / vPvB
Justification:

GDMA was shown to be readily biodegradable in a closed bottle test. Therefore, GDMA is not P and not vP.

GDMA has a log Kow of 1.46 and is therefore not expected to bioaccumulate in animals. Therefore, mercaptoacetic acid is not B and not vB.

GDMA is not T since the NOEC for freshwater organisms is > 0.01 mg/L.
