PBT assessment: overall result

PBT status:
the substance is not PBT / vPvB

As the criteria for ready biodegradation are not fulfilled (despite the indications for a - at least limited - biodegradability), the substances are considerer to fulfil the P (not vP) criterion. Neither biophysical (log Pow, molecular size) nor toxicokinetic criteria (potential for metabolism) are compatible with a potential for bioaccumulation and as the members of the Montan waxes category are neither toxic nor ecotoxic, they are regarded as

  • P (not vP)
  • Not B
  • Not T.
In conclusion, the members of the Montan waxes category show neither PBT nor vPvB characteristics.
Likely routes of exposure:

The submission substances are not PBT or vPvB. Therefore no emission characterisation is required.
