Description of key information

Additional information

In accordance with REACH Regulation 1907/2006, Annex IX (9.3.2), Column 2, a study of bioaccumulation need not be conducted if the substance has a low potential for bioaccumulation (based on a Log Kow <3). The substance has a Log Kow of 0.03 and waiving of the data requirement is justified on the basis of the stated criterion.

BCF of the substance was estimated using an accepted calculation method; EPA BCFBAF v.3.01 gives a value of 3.16 L/kg ww.

These data indicate a low potential for bioaccumulation and supporting the justification for waiving of the test requirement.

It is therefore concluded that the potential for bioaccumulation of 2,2'-[ethane-1,2-diylbis(oxy)]bisethyl diacetate (TEGDA) is low.
