Justification:

Annex XIII to the REACH Regulation is generally applicable to any substance containing an organic moiety. Based on the common definition of an organic substance in chemistry, PBT and vPvB criteria are not applicable to inorganic substances. (ECHA Guidance Document Chapter R.11, v3.0, 2017). Since the registered substance chromium (IIII) oxide is an inorganic substance, the PBT assessment does not apply.
