Description of key information

The bioaccumulation test on fish does not need to be conducted as the substance has a low potential for bioaccumulation (log Kow < 3). Therefore, the BCF in aquatic organisms was estimated using the equation from EUSES (Veith relationship: log BCF = 0.85·log Kow - 0.70 (applicable for substances with log Kow ≤6). Based on the substance's log Kow of 2.2, this results in an estimated BCF for fish of 14.8 L/kg w.w.. This predicted value is used in the assessment.
