Description of key information

Additional information

No experimental data on bioaccumulation exist. However due to the hydrophilic nature of the substance, bioaccumulation is not expected as accumulation in fats is not possible. The substance when dissolved in water (and so animal tissues/fluids) will effectively separate into/become simply the two ions "phosphate" and "manganese" and therefore the bioaccumulation study (required in Annex IX, Section 9.3.2.) does not apply to the hazard assessment of inorganic metals or metal compounds. The available data is adequate for classification and labelling purposes and PBT assessment is not required for inorganic substances so no further testing is required.

The potential for bioaccumulation is therefore considered to be minimal.
