Consumer uses

Registration/ Notification status for the use:
use registered according to REACH Article 10; total tonnage manufactured/imported >=10tonnes/year per registrant
Contributing activity / technique for the environmentopen allclose all
Name of activity / technique:
Consumer 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.
