Description of key information

Significant bioaccumulation in organisms is not expected. The requirement for bioaccumulation data has been waived on the basis that the substance has a Log Kow value of <3.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

In accordance with column 2 of Annex IX, the study does not need to be conducted if the 1-octanol/water partition coefficient is <3. Due to the low logPow of below zero (OSPAR, 2002), accumulation in organisms is not expected. Thus, and for reasons of animal welfare, no study on bioaccumulation in fish is performed.
