8.1. Assessment of PBT/vPvB Properties

8.1.1. Summary and overall conclusions on PBT or vPvB properties

Hydrogen bromide is an inorganic substance with the molecular formula HBr.

Hydrogen bromide is classified as C: Corrosive, R35 and R37. The criteria for labeling as T: Toxic is not fulfilled.

Hydrogen bromide (HBr) is an inorganic gas. Upon contact with water, HBr reacts rapidly to form hydrobromic acid, which dissociates to hydrogen and bromide ions. The substance does not persist in the environment and will not bioaccumulate so does not fulfill these parameters.

8.1.2. PBT/vPvB criteria and justification

The substance is not labeled as PBT or vPvB as the criteria for labelling as Persistant, Toxic and Bioaccumulative are not fulfilled
