Description of key information

A BCF of 53 was reported in Bluegill for DCPD.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

BCF (aquatic species):
53 dimensionless

Additional information

The value indicates that this substance would not meet the criteria for Bioaccumulative in the PBT assessment, nor indicate the potential for chronic effects in the environment in the classification and labelling assessment of this substance.

Bentley (1976) follows a study method equivalent to a standard guideline and, although it is accepted that there are some limitations in the study design, this study is still considered adequate for the assessment of this endpoint. OECD SIDS for Dicyclopentadiene identified a MITI (1997) study which showed a BCF range of 58.9 - 384 for Carp. This study was unavailable for review but considered adequate for assessment as a supporting study.
