Administrative data

PBT assessment: overall result

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

Persistence Assessment

After 28 days 86.6 % of the test substance had been degraded in a manometric respirometry test (OECD Guideline 301 F). Based on these results, the substance is ready biodegradable and therefore identified as not P/vP.

BioaccumulationAssessment

In the absence of a measured BCF value, the log KOWcan be used as a screening criterion for bioaccumulative potential (i. e. >4.5). As the log KOWof the substance is below 4.5, the B/vB criterion is not met. Therefore the substance is identified as not B/vB.

Toxicity Assessment

The acute effect information for all three trophic levels is much higher than the screening criterion of 0.1 mg/l. It can therefore be expected that vinyl chloride is not toxic towards aquatic organisms. The overall conclusions, based on the present available data, of the preliminary PBT assessment are that the (screening) criteria for PBT/vPvB are not met and that further testing in the scope of the final PBT assessment is not considered to be required.
