Description of key information

BCF QSAR Fish: ≥ 148.8 and ≤ 234.0 L/Kg ww (limit range of all constituents), BCFBAF v3.01; EpiSuite 4.11 - US EPA, 2015

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

BCFBAF v3.01 Bioconcentration factor (BCF), EpiSuite 4.11, US EPA, November 2012

BCF QSAR Fish: 161.1 (Constituent 1) wet-wt and 148.8 to 172.2 L/kg wet-wt (Constituents 2 and 3)

The limit range of all constituents BCF was: 148.8 to 234.0 L/kg wet-wt (or estimated log BCF: 2.173 to 2.369)

The substance is not expected to bioaccumulate (predicted-BCF is significantly less than 2000). Further reference to REACH Regulation (EC) 1907/2006 Annex XIII section 1.1.2 – whilst acknowledging the screening criteria of log Kow = 4.5 is exceeded for specific constituents the predictions for BCF are an order of magnitude below the BCF = 2000 cut-off. The substance constituents do not appear to have the potential to fulfil the bioaccumulative criteria. The constituents are equally significantly below the screening criteria cut-off BCF ≥ 500 as indicated in CLP Regulation (EC) 1272/2008: section 4.
