-         Based on its log Kow value (2.8) heptanal has a low potential for bioaccumulation.

-         Heptanal does not fulfil the Toxic criterion: concerning the aquatic compartment EC50 or LC50 > 0.1 mg/L and NOEC for mammals > 30 mg/kg food. Last but not least, heptanalis not classified as carcinogenic, mutagenic or toxic for reproduction.


Consequently, heptanal is not PBT nor vPvB.
