Description of key information

Zinc bis dimethyldithiocarbamate shows low potential for bioaccumulation (log Kow of 1.65).

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

According to Regulation EC 1907/2006, Annex IX, Column 2, a study does not need to be conducted if the substance has low potential for bioaccumulation. Since zinc bis dimethyldithiocarbamate has a log Kow value of 1.65 (below trigger value of 3), bioaccumulation of this substance in aquatic organisms is not expected.
