Additional information

The Bioconcentration and Bioaccumulation factors above, estimated by means of BCFBAF v3.01 (September 2012) have been used in order to complete the assessment.

Moreover an information on bioaccumulation in fish ("accumulation in carps was judged to be very small") on the Similar Substance 01 (CAS 21850-77-2) reported in Great Lakes Chemical Corporation (1987) [1] cited in the WHO publication[2] has been used as a supporting information for the assessment on the basis of the wide similarity between AP 1300 S and Similar Substance 01; the two chemicals share the same structure, except for the fact that Similar Substance 01 presents two dibromobutane functional groups linked to the dibromophenol core, instead the dibromo-methylbutane as in the case of AP 1300 S. The justification for the Read Across approach has been detailed in the document attached to the IUCLID Section 13.
