other justification
Justification for data waiving:
the study does not need to be conducted because the substance has a low potential for bioaccumulation based on log Kow <=3

Description of key information

The log Kow of pentaerythritol is reported to be -1.7 (see Section 4.7, partition coefficient). Given that the log Kow is below the trigger of 3, the substance pentaerythritol is not expected to bioaccumulate in living organisms. According to Column 2 of Annex IX of the REACH regulation, no bioaccumulation study is required if the log Kow is below the trigger of 3. 

Key value for chemical safety assessment
