PBT assessment: overall result

PBT status:
the substance is not PBT / vPvB
Likely routes of exposure:

The PBT Assessment for the substance is based on the criteria set out in the “Guidance on information requirements and chemical safety assessment, Chapter R.11: PBT Assessment” (ECHA, 2017).

 

Persistency

The substance is readily biodegradable based on screening criteria.This was shown in a study according to OECD 301 F (62% biodegradation after 28 d, 10 day-window fulfilled). Thus, the substance does not meet the screening criterion for persistency and is not considered to be not persistent (P) or very persistent (vP) in the environment.

 

Bioaccumulation

Due to the low log Kow value of <-2.7 bioaccumulation is not expected. Thus, the substance does not meet the screening criterion for bioaccumulation and is not considered to be bioaccumulative (B) or very bioaccumulative (vB) in accordance with ECHA Guidance R.11 (ECHA, 2017).

 

Toxicity

Acute aquatic toxicity studies are available for fish, aquatic invertebrates and algae. No effects were observed for all three trophic levels up to a test item concentration of 100 mg/L. Moreover, the substance is not classified as carcinogenic (category 1A or 1B), germ cell mutagenic (category 1A or 1B) or toxic for reproduction (category 1A, 1B or 2) according to the consolidated version of Regulation (EC) No. 1272/2008 and all further amendments (ATPs). Thus, the criteria set out in Annex XIII of Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006 are not met and the test substance is not considered to meet the T criterion.

 

In conclusion, the substance is not PBT/vPvB.
