Additional information

Different studies have been reviewed for Bioaccumulation in aquatic organisms endpoint for test chemical and its read across chemicals and their results are summarized below.

The first study was done by using BCFBAF Program (v3.00) model of EPI suite (2018) in this study the bio concentration factor (BCF) for  estimated was 1340 L/kg wet-wt at 25 deg. c which does not exceed the bioconcentration threshold of 2000. Therefore it is concluded that test chemical is non-bioaccumulative in food chain.

In another study using Bio-concentration Factor (v12.1.0.50374) module the Bio-concentration Factor at range pH 0-6, 7, 8, 9 and 10  of the test chemical was estimated to be 1765 , 1764, 1754, 1662, and 1039 dimensionless respectively and in range 1-113 dimensionless at pH range 11-14.These values indicate that the chemical is non-bioaccumulative in aquatic organisms as this value does not exceed 2000 criteria.

Third study was experimental study reviewed from authoritative database (J check) in this study the Bioaccumulation test was conducted for 6 weeks for determination the bioconcentration factor (BCF) of chemical on test organism Cyprinus carpio. Nominal concentrations 1st Concentration area: 0.2 ppm(w/v), 2nd Concentration area: 0.02 ppm(w/v) and range-finding / preliminary study wa Test concentrations : TLm(48h) 14.3 ppm(w/v), Rice fish (Oryzias latipes) and test system used was vessels for volatile substances. The vehicle used in this study was Tween 80, and its concentration was 1st Concentration area: 2 ppm(w/v), 2nd Concentration area: 0.2 ppm(w/v). Recovery ratio :Test water : 1st concentration area : 91.8 %, 2nd concentration area : 84.5 %, Fish : 94.0 %, - Limit of detection : Test water 1st concentration area : 17 ppb, 2nd concentration area : 1.9 ppb, Fish : 0.06 ppm. Thus according to static Fish Test The bioconcentration factor (BCF) for chemical was determined according static fish test. The BCF value was observed to be in range 6.5-10 L/kg at dose concentration 0.2 mg/L and 2.7-8.1 L/kg at dose concentration 0.02 mg/L on test organism Cyprinus carpio during 6 weeks period. Therefore it is concluded that this test chemical is non-bioaccumulative. These BCF values indicate that the test substance is not bioaccumulative in fish and food chain as these values are far less than 2000 criteria.

Last study was reviewed from authoritative database (HSDB) in this study the BCF value of test chemical estimated was 37 dimensionless by using log Kow of 2.36 and regression derived equation and it is far less than 2000 criteria. On the basis of calculated BCF value it is concluded that chemical is non bioaccumulative.

By considering results of all the studies mentioned above it is concluded that test chemical is not bioaccumulative in fish and food chain all BCF values are far less than 2000 criteria of CLP regulation
