Description of key information

Additional information

Data for the physical and chemical properties of barium sulfate were provided based on studies for the following endpoints: granulometry. The other endpoints are based on handbook data and long time experiences in handling.

It is noted here thathandbook data for physico-chemical properties are considered to be from a trusted source acc. to "ECHA, Guidance on information requirements and chemical safety assessment – Chapter R.7a: Endpoint specific guidance" and therefore, theses data could be regarded as valid.

The results of the studies are reported in the endpoint summary as well as in the accompanying IUCLID database. Data for several endpoints were waived due to intrinsic properties of barium sulfate or based on the criteria as laid down in regulation (EC) 1907/2008 as described above.
