Justification:

Assessment of PBT/vPvB Properties

Summary and overall conclusions on PBT or vPvB properties

An assessment of the PBT status of the substance has been made using all available data. The information available suggests that the substance does not meet the PBT screening criteria as outlined in Directive 2006/121/EC (Appendix A).

 

PBT/vPvB criteria and justification

Persistence Assessment

 

A Zahn-Wellens test (OECD 302B) indicated that the substance is inherently biodegradable and therefore it can be regarded as not persistent.

 

Bioaccumulation Assessment

In the absence of a measured BCF value, the log KOW can be used as a screening criterion for bioaccumulative potential (i. e. >4.5). As the log KOW of the substance is below 4.5, the B/vB criterion is not met. Therefore the substance is identified as not B.

 

Toxicity Assessment

The acute effect information for all three trophic levels is much higher than the screening criterion of 0.1 mg/l. It can therefore be expected that the substance is not toxic towards aquatic organisms.

The overall conclusions, based on the present available data, of the preliminary PBT assessment are that the (screening) criteria for PBT/vPvB are not met and that further testing in the scope of the final PBT assessment is not considered to be required.

 

Emission Characterisation

The substance is not a PBT/vPvB substance, therefore the emission characterisation does not need to be conducted.
