Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

According to REACh regulation EG Nr. 1907/2006 Annex IX Column 2, 9.3.2 the study does not to be conducted if the substance has a low potential for bioaccumualtion (Log Kow < 3). This requirement is met by the test item with a log Kow of -2.28.Thereforer, the substance has not been tested as a study is scientifically not justified. Due to the low logKow accumulation in oragnisms is not to be expected.


For the component 108 -78 -1(melamine):

Measured data confirm the absence of bioaccumulation. The BCF was <1 in each case, exept for one study (Nite 2010), whre the BCFwas 3.8.
