Summary and overall conclusions on PBT or vPvB properties

The assessment of the PBT/vPvBstatus of the substance has been made using all available data. The information available suggests that the substance does not meet the PBT/vPvBscreening criteria as outlined in Directive 2006/121/EC (Appendix A).


PBT/vPvB criteria and justification

Persistence Assessment:A manometric respirometry test (EU Method C.4-D) showed that the substance is ready biodegradable and therefore it can be regarded as not persistent.


Bioaccumulation Assessment:In the absence of a measured BCF value, the log KOW can be used as a screening criterion for bioaccumulative potential (i. e. >4.5). As the log KOW of the substance is below 4.5, the B/vB criterion is not met. Therefore the substance is identified as not B/vB.


Toxicity Assessment:The acute effect information for all three trophic levels is much higher than the screening criterion of 0.1 mg/l. It can therefore be expected that the substance is not toxic towards aquatic organisms.


Emission Characterisation

The substance is not a PBT/vPvB substance, therefore the emission characterisation does not need to be conducted.
