PBT assessment: overall result

PBT status:
the substance is not PBT / vPvB

The PBT/vPvB assessment of coconut shell charcoal was performed based on the screening criteria according to Annex XIII of the EU REACH Regulation. These screening criteria are also outlined in chapter R.11 of the ECHA guidance on information requirements and chemical safety assessment.

Although coconut shell charcoal meets the P screening criterion, it clearly does not meet the B screening criterion and there is no evidence for any relevant toxicity associated with coconut shell charcoal. Accordingly, coconut shell charcoal is not considered as PBT or vPvB.
