Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.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:
PBT assessment does not apply

A PBT and vPvB assessment shall be conducted as foreseen in Article 14 (3) (d) in conjunction with Annex I Section 4 according to the criteria as laid down in Annex XIII. According to Annex XIII of regulation (EC) 1907/2006 a PBT and vPvB assessment shall not apply to inorganic substances, but shall apply to organo-metal. Organo-metal compounds are defined as organic compounds that contain at least one metal or metalloid atom bound to a carbon atom. Because in metal carboxylates, the metal cation is only bound to the negatively charged oxygen in the carboxyl group via an ionic bond, the substance Fatty acids, C14-18 and C16-18-unsatd., barium salts is considered as an inorganic substance, and thus a PBT and vPvB assessment is not required.

The organic moiety of this metal salt, i.e. fatty acids, C14-18 and C16-18-unsatd. (CAS: 67701-06-8), does not have PBT properties because it does not meet the criteria for persistence (fatty acids C14-18 and C14-18 and C16-18-unsatd. are predicted to be readily biodegradable, EPI Suite 4.0, BIOWIN v4.10), bioaccumulation (BCF is < 2000 L/kg wet weight based on data for sodium laureate; van Egmond et al., Environmental toxicity and chemistry 18: 466-473) and toxicity (no CMR or STOT RE classification, no acute toxicity for marine or freshwater organisms observed below 1 mg/L).
