The European Commission has published a new Regulation, 260/2014, which amends the REACH Regulation concerning testing of chemicals. The specific tests, for the physicochemical properties of chemicals, which have been amended or added are:
- water solubility (equivalent to OECD Test Guideline (TG) 105 (1995)).
- partition coefficient test method relevant for the persistent, bioaccumulative and toxic (PBT) assessment – partitioning between water and 1-octanol (equivalent to OECD Test Guideline (TG) 123 (2006)).
These will now be carried out by organisations submitting dossiers under REACH.
