There are no reliable experimental data on bioaccumulation for p-cresol
available. Therefore, data of the isomer m-cresol and o-cresol are taken
into account to describe the potential for bioaccumulation of p-cresol
based on a read-across approach. The lowest value of 10.7 is used for
Bioconcentration factors (BCF) in fish (Leuciscus idus melanotus) were
determined with 14C-labelled m-cresol. The fish were exposed to a 0.05
mg/l solution of the tests compound. After the test period of 3 days
radioactivity was measured in water medium and fish. BCF values of 20
were obtained. In a flow-through test according to OECD guideline 305 E
for o-cresol a BCF of 10.7 in zebrafish (Brachydanio rerio) were
Based on the results it is considered that p-cresol has no potential for
