PBT assessment: overall result

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

Toxicity Assessment:

Sodium ethylenesulphonate is not classified or likely to be classified as carcinogenic (cat. 1A or 1B), germ cell mutagenic (cat. 1A or 1B) or toxic to reproduction (cat. 1A,1B or 2) or STOT RE 1, or STOT RE 2 according to CLP.The NOEC values obtained in acute aquatic toxicity tests were above 0.1 mg/L. These data lead to the conclusion, that Sodium ethylenesulphonate does not fulfill the T criterion.

 

Persistence and Bioaccumulation Assessment:

A potential for bioaccumulation of Sodium ethylenesulphonate is not expected due to the log Pow of -1.01 (no B). Sodium ethylenesulphonate is inherently biodegradable. This indicates that the substance is not persistent (no P).

 

Regarding all available data on biotic and abiotic degradation, bioaccumulation and toxicity it can be stated that Sodium ethylenesulphonate does neither fulfill the PBT nor the vPvB criteria.
