PBT assessment: overall result

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

To be considered as PBT, a substance should fulfil the criteria for persistence (P) and bioaccumulation (B) and toxicity (T). Even if Mequinol is considered as T substance because it is classified as Reprotoxic Category 2 (H361d) (new classification coming from the OECD test guideline n°414 study -testing proposal), it does not fulfill the criteria P and B. Therefore Mequinol is not considered as a PBT substance according to REACH criteria.

 

To be considered as vPvB, a substance should fulfil the criteria for very persistence (vP) and very bioaccumulation (vB). As none of the criteria are fulfilled, Mequinol is not considered as a vPvB substance according to REACH criteria.
