PBT assessment

Administrative data

PBT assessment: overall result

PBT status:
the substance is not PBT / vPvB

The "T" criterion is checked against NOEC data from (standard) long term ecotoxicity tests. Since the lowest NOEC/EC10 observed for In is > 0.01mg/l (i.e. 94 µg/l, see section 6.1.), In and In substances are not to be considered "T" under PBT assessment (guidance R7.b.).

The "P" criterion is not applicable to inorganic substances as such. Experimental data (transformation/dissolution, see section 4.8) demonstrate that upon addition of In-substances to water, In concnetration in the water column very rapidly (within 24 hrs) decreases to "<DL" concentrations. as such, the substances is surely not to be considered as "persistent" in the water column.

Criterion "B" : no data

Based on the considerations above, it is concluded that Indium and Indium substances are not PBT.
