PBT assessment: overall result

Reference
Name:
Phenylacetaldehyde
Type of composition:
legal entity composition of the substance
State / form:
liquid
Reference substance:
Composition 1
PBT status:
the substance is not PBT / vPvB
Justification:

The PBT Assessment for the substance is based on the criteria set out in the “Guidance on information requirements and chemical safety assessment, Chapter R.11: PBT Assessment” (ECHA, 2014).

 

Persistency assessment
One experimental study is available investigating the biodegradability of the substance. The study was performed according to OECD 301D (GLP). After 28 d the substance was degraded to 69% (O2 consumption) meeting the 14-day window indicating that the substance is readily biodegradable according to the OECD criteria. Thus, the substance is not considered to meet the P/vP criteria based on the available data.

 

Bioaccumulation
The substance has a log Kow of 1.44 (OECD 117). In accordance with the ECHA Guidance R.11 substances with a log Kow of < 4.5 are not considered to be B/vB. Thus, the substance is not considered to be B/vB based on the screening criteria.

 

Toxicity
Aquatic studies are available for three trophic levels. All acute effect concentrations were clearly > 0.1 mg/L (lowest EC50 (72 h): 1.6 mg/L). Moreover, the substance is not classified as carcinogenic, mutagenic or toxic to reproduction (CMR) and the substance is not considered to be P/vP and B/vB. Thus, in accordance with ECHA Guidance R.11 no further assessment is necessary.
