PBT assessment: overall result

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

Because trimellitic anhydride (TMA, CAS 552 -30 -7) hydrolyses almost instantaneously on contact with water to give trimellitic acid (TMLA, CAS 528-44-9), the PBT assessment was made on that substance.

 

As result, trimellitic acid does not meet the criteria to be regarded as either PBT or vPvB.
