Description of key information

Bioaccumulation study conducted in accordance with "Test method for new chemical substances" determined in Regulation Number 392 (1974). 

Key value for chemical safety assessment

BCF (aquatic species):
2 dimensionless

Additional information

The experimentally-determined log Kow of 0.05 is substantially below the criterion of log Kow ˂ 3 at which bioaccumulation testing is not indicated, as described in Regulation (EC) No.1907/2006, Annex IX, Column 2.  In addition, the bioaccumulation study of the substance in carp indicated that bioconcentration is not of concern; the BCF value 2 from the low concentration test and BCF≤ 0.7 from the high concentration test are each substantially below the definitive criteria for both bioaccumulative (> 2,000 L/kg) and very bioaccumulative (>5,000 L/kg).  Therefore, bioaccumulation is not expected in the aquatic compartment.
