Description of key information

In accordance with column 2 of Annex IX, a bioaccumulation study does not need to be conducted if the octanol/water partition coefficient of the substance is <3. Based on the key study for chapter 4.7, the log Pow of sodium formate was measured to be <-1.8 (Perstorp, 2009). Hence, significant accumulation of sodium formate in organisms is not expected.
