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

The substance is considered not to be readily biodegradable based on available information and therefore is considered to have the potential to meet the criterion for Persistence.

Information in ECHA's disseminated dossier for the joint submission indicates that the substance has a relatively low octanol/water partition co-efficient (log Pow = 1.66) and so is considered not to meet the screening criteria for Bioaccumulation.

The toxicological profile of the substance is such that, based on the available information, the substance does not meet the PBT criterion for Toxicity.

As such the substance is not considered to be a PBT or vPvB substance
