Human health criteria in a CAA evaluate endpoints such as potential carcinogenicity, mutagenicity, reproductive and developmental toxicity, endocrine disruption, acute and chronic or repeat dose toxicity, irritation and sensitization. Acute and chronic aquatic toxicity, terrestrial toxicity, persistence and bioaccumulation are commonly evaluated to predict a chemical’s environmental toxicity and fate. Finally, some CAAs (such as GreenScreent) also evaluate a chemical’s physical characteristics.
