Additional information

Where possible, PNEC calcualtions have been undertaken using default assessment factors in accordance with ECHA guidance on information requirements and chemical safety assessment Chapert R.10: Characterisation of dose [concentration] response for environmet.

It should be noted that water solubility of the high molecular weight phthalate esters is low and No Observed Effect Concentrations (NOECs) are derived from studies where it is not possible to achieve a demonstrable effect level.

Conclusion on classification

Available data on environmental effects do not suggest a need for classification
