Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.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

Persistence: p-tert-amylphenol can be considered to be inherently bioegradable based on reliable measured biodegradation studies. Consequently, in line with the detailed ECHA guidance, p-tert-amylphenol does not fulfil the criteria for Persistence (P).

Bioaccumulation:There are no reliable measured bioaccumulation data available for p-tert-amylphenol. However, it is concluded p-tert-amylphenol is neither bioaccumulative nor very bioaccumulative based on measured log Kow is less than 4.5 and modeled BCF results are less than 2000. It is concluded that there is a low potential for exposure and bioaccumulation in terrestrial organisms.

P-tert-amylphenol does not fulfil the criteria “bioaccumulative (B)” or “very bioaccumulative (vB)”. According to ECHA Guidance on information requirements and chemical safety assessment (May 2008), Chapter R.11, Figure 11-2: Integrated testing strategy for B-assessment, no further testing is required to conclude on the bioaccumulation criterion.

Toxicity: Based on available reliable data for toxicity of p-tert-amylphenol short-term acute toxicity (LC50 or EC50) to aquatic organisms is >0.01 mg/L and does not meet the definitive toxicity criterion according to the ECHA guidance on PBT assessment (Part C). Chronic data on aquatic species showed no effect concentrations (expressed as NOEC) >0.01 mg/l and therefore the criteria of Annex XIII REACH for aquatic toxicity are not fulfilled. Therefore, it can be concluded that the substance does not fulfill the toxicity (T) criterion as laid down in Annex XIII of regulation (EC) No 1907/2006.

The overall conclusion is that p-tert-amylphenol does not meet the PBT or vPvB criteria. No further testing is required.
