Following an Annex XV Dossier submitted by UK the substance was
identified as substance of very high concern and added to the candidate
Primary degradation half-lives in sediment and soil significantly exceed
180 days, indicating that the substance is very persistent.
The substance as such is not considered as bioaccumulative or very
bioaccumulative based on the available data. However, the Annex XV
dossier concluded " On the basis of the available data it can be
concluded that there is a high probability that decaBDE is transformed
in soil and sediments to form substances which either have PBT/vPvB
properties, or act as precursors to substances with PBT/vPvB properties,
in individual amounts greater than 0.1% over timescales of a year.
Transformation to such substances within biota provides an additional
pathway for the exposure of organisms". It was concluded that decaBDE is
considered to meet the definition of a PBT/vPvB-forming substance in
accordance with Annex XIII of the REACH regulation and thereby fullfils
the criteria in Article 57(d) and (e).
