Additional information

Standard bioaccumulation studies are not applicable for hydrocarbon UVCB substances. In accordance with Annex XI Section 1.3 testing is not scientifically necessary and the endpoint has been fulfilled using multiple QSAR calculations for relevant constituents. Full justifications for these QSAR are presented in 'Attached justification' within the associated endpoint records, but 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

-adequate and reliable documentation is provided
