PBT assessment: overall result

Reference
Name:
Acid Green 016
Type of composition:
legal entity composition of the substance
Reference substance:
Composition 1
PBT status:
the substance is not PBT / vPvB
Justification:

The substance has been included by ECHA into the Annex III inventory. One of the critical aspects indicated as reason for inclusion is the following: "Suspected persistent in the environment: The Danish QSAR database contains information indicating that the substance is predicted as non readily biodegradable".

Based on the chemical structure, the substance is expected to be non readily biodegradable. There are no available data to determine if the substance could be inherently biodegradable or if it is persistent. However, the substance is expected to be not PBT, either vPvB, because of the physicochemical properties: the substance shows a low potential for bioaccumulation (log Kow < 3) and a low potential to cross biological membranes (high molecular weight, high polarity).
