PBT assessment: overall result

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

Data for the definitive conclusion on the PBT or vPvB properties of Fatty Acid Glycerides are not available. Thus, the screening criteria given in the ‘Guidance on information requirements and chemical safety assessment - Chapter R.11: PBT assessment’ (ECHA, 2008) are used as surrogate information to decide whether the substance may potentially fulfil the PBT or vPvB criteria.

Persistence (P) Assessment:

The screening criterion for Persistence (P) is the potential of a substance to be readily biodegradable. As the category members Fatty Acid Glycerides are readily biodegradable, they are not fulfilling the criteria for Persistence (P) and are thus “not P” and “not vP”.

Bioaccumulation (B) Assessment:

An evaluation of the bioaccumulation potential of FattyAcidGlyceridesis presented in chapter 4.3indicating that the substance(s) does not meet the Bioaccumulative (B) or very Bioaccumulative (vB) criteria and can therefore be considered unlikely to be bioaccumulative.

Toxicity (T) Assessment:

None of the measured data for Fatty Acid Glycerides do fulfil the classification criteria for classification as R45, R46, R48, R49, R60-63 or the screening criterion for Toxicity (T) to aquatic organisms stipulated in the ECHA’s “Guidance on information requirements and chemical safety assessment – Chapter R.11: PBT Assessment” (2008).Therefore this substance is not considered toxic (T).
