Additional information

The bioaccumulation potential of the test substance 2 -Propenoic acid, docosyl esters was calculated to be 35.27 L/kg or log BCF = 1.547 using the EPA Epiwin (v.4.11) software. Furthermore, direct and indirect exposure of the test item to water and soil is highly unlikely. According to Annex XIII a substance does not fulfils the Bioaccumulation criterion (B-) when the bioconcentration factor (BCF) is lower than 2000, therefore a test for bioaccumulation: aquatic/sediment does not need to be conducted.
