PBT assessment: overall result

Reference
Name:
Barium dibenzoate
Type of composition:
boundary composition of the substance
Reference substance:
Barium dibenzoate
PBT status:
PBT assessment does not apply
Justification:

According to Annex XIII of Regulation (EC) 1907/2006 a PBT and vPvB assessment shall not be conducted for inorganic substances. Barium dibenzoate is an inorganic metal salt; thus, a PBT and vPvB assessment is not required. However, barium dibenzoate consists of barium cations and benzoate anions. The latter is readily biodegradable, not bioaccumulative and not toxic, and thus not PBT.
