Summary of Public Comments Received on the Government of Canada’s Draft Screening Assessment Report on Pigment Red 5 (CAS No. 6410-41-9)
Formal comments made during the 60-day public comment period that took place from August 23, 2008 to October 22, 2008 on the draft screening assessment report on Pigment Red 5, a substance included in Batch 3 of substances to be addressed as part of the Chemicals Management Plan Challenge were provided by Reach for Unbleached Foundation.
A summary of comments and responses is included below, organized by topic:
- Persistence, Bioaccumulation and inherent Toxicity
|Persistence, Bioaccumulation and inherent Toxicity||The persistence and bioaccumulation assessment is limited by the lack of data.||The assessment is based on available information using the current state of the science. When used in bioaccumulation models, this predicts a low bioaccumulation/bioconcentration potential, therefore based on available information, Pigment Red 5 is not bioaccumulative. Pigment Red 5 is relatively inert and has a low potential for biodegradation. In general, pigments are designed to be persistent.|
