Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

PBT assessment: overall result

PBT status:
the substance is not PBT / vPvB

Both compositions have the same non-PBT outcome.

Based on the assessment described in the subsections below the submission substance is not considered as PBT / vPvB.

Persistence assessment

Screening criteria


Screening test

Test results / Justification

Ready biodegradability test(s)

The assessed substance is readily biodegradable indicating that the substance is not a P/vP.

The assessed substance is readily biodegradable indicating that the substance is not a P/vP.

Bioaccumulation assessment

Criteria based on Annex XIII of REACH


Criterion for non-B

Test results / Justification

BCF <= 2000 L/kg


The available BCF data indicate that the assessed substance is not a B.

Conclusion of B / vB assessment

The constituent of methyl esters distillation residue are also monoglyceride, diglyceride and trygliceride. These substances are included in fish and mammalian natural diet. They follow the normal fat metabolism and may be accumulated in adipose tissue inside the organism when quantities exceed the natural regulation capacity metabolism. The other constituents (fatty acid methyl esters and glycerine) doesn't present any concern related to bioaccumulation.

Toxicity assessment

Criteria based on Annex XIII of REACH


Criterion for non-T

Test results / Justification

NOEC >= 0.01 mg/L for marine or freshwater organisms (long-term toxicity)

No long term ecotox studies are available. Based on the available acute toxicity studies, all values are above 1 mg/L.

Substance is not classified as carcinogenic (category 1 or 2), mutagenic (category 1 or 2), or toxic for reproduction (category 1, 2 or 3)

From the existing studies no concern is arised for carcinogenic effect:

1) The substance is not mutagenic.The ability of substances to induce mutations or genotoxicity can be indicative of carcinogenic potential. There is, in general, a good correlation between positive genotoxicity findings in vivo and animal carcinogenicity bioassay results

2) Repeated dose toxicity tests: no toxicity has been revealed in repeated dose toxicity tests, no tissued has revealed preneoplastic

changes (e.g. hyperplasia or metaplasia) suspected to be conducive to tumour development

3) Toxicokinetics : no tissue has been identified as a targets for toxicity and development of tumors

4) QSAR prediction: CAESAR modelling version doesnt show any concern for carcinogenicity potential on the different conponents of the substance (Fatty acids, Fatty acids methyl esters, tryglicerides)

No other evidence of chronic toxicity, as identified by the classifications: T, R48, or Xn, R48 according to Directive 67/548/EEC)


The available information indicates that the assessed substance is not a T.
