PBT assessment: overall result

PBT status:
the substance is not PBT / vPvB

While DEHP fulfills criteria for ready biodegradability (including the 10 -day window requirement), results of simulation tests in surface water, sediment and soil are highly variable. Concluding from that, conservative half-lives are derived justifying an overall classification as P. From a BCF determined in fish of 614 and data reliably demonstrating trophic dilution in food webs, bioaccumulation potential is regarded to be low. While no ecotoxic effects were determined in relevant aquatic studies on acute or chronic toxicity, DEHP must be regarded as T from its human health hazard classification for reproductive toxicity: Repr. 1B. Thus, DEHP is regarded as

 P (not vP)

 Not B

 T.

In conclusion, DEHP does neither fulfil PBT nor vPvB characteristics.
