Additional information

The vapour pressure of the test material was determined in accordance with standardised guidelines OECD 104 and EU Method A.4 using the gas saturation method. The suitability of the test system was checked against the literature values provided by the OECD guideline for anthracene, which were found to be in agreement with experimentally obtained values. Under the conditions of the test, the vapour pressure of the test material was determined to be 1.3 x 10 -6at 25 °C.

The study was performed in line with GLP and accepted standardised guidelines with a high level of reporting. The study was assigned a reliability score of 1 in accordance with the principles of assessing data quality outlined in Klimisch (1997), and considered suitable for assessment as an accurate reflection of the test material.

The available data are considered to be complete and the result determined, 1.3 x 10 -6 Pa at 25 °C, was taken forward for risk assessment.
