  1. The substances either are borderline chemicals (italics), for which one of the criteria for a SVHC is failed by not more than 10% but which are prone to long-range transport, or fulfil at least three of the screening criteria indicating LRTP (half-life criterion t1/2(air) > 2 days, multimedia model ELPOS, chemical profile of known Arctic contaminants according to Brown and Wania [8], or combination of the half-life criterion with the log KAW condition defined by Muir and Howard [9], log KAW ≥ 5 and ≤1) and fail one criterion to be accounted for a SVHC by more than 10% (extended borderline).
