Description of key information

In accordance with column 2 of REACH Annex IX the study does not need to be conducted since the substance has a low potential for bioaccumulation (log Kow < 3).

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

An assessment of the bioaccumulative behaviour of the substance is not demanded in the tonnage band of 10 -100 t. Nevertheless, bioaccumulation is relevant for PBT/vPvB assessment. Since there is no experimental data on bioaccumulation of the substance the log Kow is used as a screening criterion. The components of the substance give log Kow between -0.21 and 0.35 which indicates that there is no bioaccumulation of the substance to be expected. The criterion for categorisation as B / vB (log Kow >= 4.5) is not fulfilled.
