PBT assessment: overall result

Reference
Name:
cyclohexanol
Type of composition:
legal entity composition of the substance
State / form:
solid: bulk
Reference substance:
cyclohexanol
PBT status:
the substance is not PBT / vPvB
Justification:

Based on the available data, the substance does not fulfil the REACH criteria for all three aspects of Persistence, Bioaccumulation and Toxicity, nor both of the criteria for Very Persistent and Very Bioaccumulative, and is therefore not considered to be a PBT or vPvB substance. The log Kow of 1.25 is clearly below the trigger value of 4.5 for bioaccumulation, and the substance is readily biodegradable and therefore very unlikely to be persistent in the environment.

In line with recommendations in the technical guidance, it is not considered necessary to undertake a definitive assessment of the PBT properties, as the substance does not meet the screening criteria for PBT or vPvB properties according to Regulation (EC) No. 1907/2006.
