Additional information

According to REACH Annex IX, Point 9.3.2 (Bioaccumulation in aquatic species, preferably fish), the study needs not be conducted if:

– the substance has a low potential for bioaccumulation (for instance a log Kow < 3) and/or a low potential to cross biological membranes; or

– direct and indirect exposure of the aquatic compartment is unlikely.

With a log Kow of 2.75, a study using animals is not justified.

The bioaccumulation potential of butylal is calculated with BCFBAF software (v3.00) as Log BCF: 1.48 and BCF: 30.38 L/kg.
