Endpoint summary

Administrative data

Description of key information

Standard bioaccumulation studies are not applicable to petroleum UVCB substances, therefore in accordance with Annex XI Section 1.3 testing is not scientifically necessary and the endpoint has been fulfilled using QSAR calculations for relevant constituents based on BCFBAF v3.01. In brief these are justified because:

- the results are obtained from a QSAR model whose scientific validity has been established

- petroleum substances fall within the applicability domain of the QSAR model

- results are adequate for the purposes of risk assessment

BCF for Hydrocarbons, C7-C9, isoalkanes is 105 L/kg wet-wt.
