The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

PBT assessment: overall result

PBT status:
the substance is not PBT / vPvB

The bioconcentration potential of (2-Ethoxy-1-methyl-2-oxoethyl)-5-[2-chloro-4-(trifluoromethyl) phenoxy]-2-nitrobenzoate was determined in bluegill sunfish (Lepomis macrochirus) is low, and clearance was almost complete for the substance in fish.

Uptake-depuration was modeled for whole fish using a two-compartment kinetic model yielding a bioconcentration factor (BCF) of 220. With measured values of the 30th d, the BCF was 380 (whole body w.w.).

No relevant accumulation was observed in soil tests after application as a herbicidal agent.

Likely routes of exposure:

As a herbicidal substance, the substance will be sprayed. According to good agricultural practice, the substance will be only applied in a manner which decreases drift. The substance is not legally applied in the EU.
