Description of key information

Additional information

In accordance with column 2 of REACH Annex IX, a test on bioaccumulation in aquatic species is not necessary as the substance has a low potential for bioaccumulation. The log Kow of -0.12 suggests that the substance has a very low bioaccumulation potential. EUSES calculated a value for BCF of 1.41. l/kg wwt, but this value should be considered with care because of the chemical structure of the substance. Biotransformation of the long alkyl chain is not taken into account in the BCF calculation. The available information (log Kow and calculated BCF value) is deemed sufficient for the PBT assessment, classification and labelling and the chemical safety assessment.
