PBT assessment

Administrative data

PBT assessment: overall result

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

Quaternary ammonium compounds, C12-18-alkylbis(hydroxyethyl)methyl, chlorides do not meet the requirements for P/vP and B /vB based on criteria laid down in Annex XIII of REACH.

Persistence assessment

The persistence assessment is based on the screening criteria in Annex XIII of the REACH Regulation. Quaternary ammonium compounds, C12-18-alkylbis(hydroxyethyl)methyl, chlorides are considered to be readily biodegradable. Thus the substance is concluded to be not P/vP.

Bioaccumulation assessment

The bioaccumulation assessment is based on the screening criteria in Annex XIII of the REACH Regulation. The Log Kow of -0.12 is far below the criterium of log Kow < 4.5, so no further assessment on bioaccumulation is needed. The substance is concluded to be not B/vB.

 

Toxicity assessment

As the substance does not meet the criteria for being persistent/very persistent nor for being bioaccumulative/very bioaccumulative , no further assessment on toxicity is needed.

Likely routes of exposure:

Further identification of likely routes of exposure is not needed as the substance does not fullfill the criteria for identification as PBT or vPvB substance.
