Additional information

In accordance with column 2 of Annex IX, the study does not need to be conducted if the substance has a low potential for bioaccumulation. The log Kow of 2.3 for n-butyl acetate (OXEA, 2009; T10198) indicates a low potential for bioaccumulation. In addition the substance is readily biodegradable (Waggy et al., 1994). Therefore and for reasons of animal welfare a fish study is not performed.
