PBT assessment: overall result

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

All of the substances in the lithium salts of monocarboxylic acids C14 -C22 category are considered to be readily biodegradable and are thus not persistent or very persistent. The substances are considered to have a low potential for bioaccumulation (8 L/kg based on lithium) and are therefore not bioaccumulative or very bioaccumulative. The substances showed no acute or chronic toxicity to aquatic organisms at the limit of solubility (NOEC ≥ 0.01 mg/L). The substances are not carcinogenic, mutagenic or toxic for reproduction and data indicate that chronic toxicity and repeat dose specific target organ toxicity is not expected. The members of this category are therefore not toxic. Therefore, the lithium salts of monocarboxylic acids C14-C22 are considered not to meet the criteria for PBT/vPvB.

Likely routes of exposure:

Assessments of likely routes of exposure are not required for substances which are considered to be not PBT/vPvB.
