Reference
Name:
N,N-dimethylformamide
Type of composition:
legal entity composition of the substance
State / form:
liquid
Reference substance:
N,N-dimethylformamide
PBT status:
the substance is not PBT / vPvB
Justification:

DMF fulfills a single relevant toxicity criterion (i.e. toxic for reproduction, Cat. 1B). According to the screening criteria given in Table R.11.2 of ECHA REACH Guidance on Information Requirements and Chemical Safety Assessment (Chapter R.11: PBT Assessment; May 2008), the test substance is assigned as T. However, DMF is not considered as a PBT substance due to the lack of persistency as well as negligible bioaccumulation potential.
