By applying weight of evidence approach to the target substance chlorocresol,the endpoint value of bioaccumulation was found to vary between BCF = 5.5 to 52 in aquatic organisms /fish. Thus it is concluded that the test substance chlorocresol is not expected to bioaccumulate in the food chain because it does not exceed the BCF criteria of >2000.
