Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

PBT assessment

Administrative data

PBT assessment: overall result

PBT status:
the substance is not PBT / vPvB
Lime oil is a Natural Complex Substance (NCS) for which >98% of the constituents is identified. All identified constituents including those known down to 0.1% are considered for the PBT-vPvB assessment. None of the known constituents of Lime oil  meet the criteria for P/vP laid down in Annex XIII of REACH. Therefore none of the known constituents of Lime oil meets the criteria for vPvB or PBT.

Persistence assessment

Up to 99% of the composition of this NCS is known and are in the category of ready or rapidly biodegradable substances. Therefore the substance Lime is considered as readily biodegradable. Thus none of the known constituents of Lime oil are considered P (or vP).


Bioaccumulation assessment

Further B/vB assessment is not relevant as none of the known constituents of Lime oil are P (or vP).


Toxicity assessment

None of the known constituents of Lime oil meet the criteria for P/vP. Therefore it can be concluded that none of the constituents are PBT or vPvB without further evaluation of the T properties.

Likely routes of exposure:

Investigation of the likely routes of exposure is not needed as the substance is not PBT or vP/vB.
