The criteria for persistence (P and vP), bioaccumulation potential (B and vB) and toxicity (T) included in RIP 3.2-2 (Chapter 11) are shown below:


PBT criteria

vPvB criteria


Half-life >60 days in marine water or >40 days in freshwater* or half-life >180 days in marine sediment or >120 days in soil or freshwater sediment*

Half-life >60 days in marine- or freshwater or >180 days in marine or soil or freshwater sediment


BCF >2,000

BCF >5,000


Chronic NOEC <0.01 mg/L or CMR or endocrine disrupting effects

Not applicable

The substance is readily biodegradable, which is considered equivalent to a half life of less than 40 days in freshwater. Hence the substance does not meet the P criterion.

A BCF value of 144 is selected from the available data in Section 7.1 of the chemicals safety report. Hence the substance does not meet the B criterion.

From human toxicological point of view, the substance is not classified as CMR substance. It does not show any concern of equivalent level as CMR substance. From ecotoxicological point of view, the lowest reliable NOEC value from the available tests is 0.037 mg/L, which is above the chronic NOEC threshold of 0.01 mg/L. It is therefore concluded that the substance is “not T”.

It is concluded that TPP does not fulfil the PBT/vPvB criteria.
