Professional exposure to tin metal or tin containing products

A quantitative risk assessment is not required for the environment as there is no basis for setting a PNEC. In addition, this substance is not classified as hazardous to the environment. A qualitative assessment has been applied. A review of these RMMs indicates that if the user complies with the following generic statements, risks to the environment can be considered to be adequately controlled.
