PBT assessment: overall result

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

Assessment of PBT/vPvB Properties Comparison with the Criteria of Annex XIII

Persistence Assessment

An evaluation of representative hydrocarbon structures indicate some structures meet the Persistent (P) or very Persistent (vP) criteria.

Bioaccumulation Assessment

An evaluation of representative hydrocarbon structures indicate no structures meet the very Bioaccumulative (vB) criterion but some structures meet the Bioaccumulative (B) criterion.

Toxicity Assessment

For representative hydrocarbons structures that were found to meet the P and B criteria, a toxicity evaluation was performed. No structures relevant to petroleum substances were found to meet the toxicity criterion except anthracene which has been confirmed as a PBT substance.

Summary and overall Conclusions on PBT or vPvB Properties

Anthracene is not present in this substance at greater than 0.1%. No other representative hydrocarbon structures were found to meet the PBT / vPvB criteria.
