Conclusions:
Using BCFBAF Program (v3.00) model of EPI suite (2018) the estimated bio concentration factor (BCF) for test chemical is 3.162 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 nonbioaccumulative in food chain.
Executive summary:

Using BCFBAF Program (v3.00) model of EPI suite (2018) the estimated bio concentration factor (BCF) for test chemical is 3.162 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 nonbioaccumulative in food chain.

Description of key information

Additional information

Different predicted studies have been reviewed for bioaccumulation endpoint and their results are summarized below.

 

The first study was done by using BCFBAF Program (v3.00) model of EPI suite (2018) the estimated bio concentration factor (BCF) for test chemical is 3.162 L/kg wet-wt at 25 deg. c

 

Another study was done by using Bio-concentration Factor (v12.1.0.50374) module Bio-concentration Factor over the entire pH scale of the test substance estimated to be 1.0 dimensionless

 

By considering results of all the studies mentioned above it is concluded that test chemical This value indicates that the test substance is non-bioaccumulative in aquatic organisms.

 

This endpoint can also be considered for waiver according to annex IX coumn 2 because the substance has low potential for bioaccumulation based on log Kow<= 3
