13.1 L/kg ww

Additional information

In accordance with REACH Regulation 1907/2006, Annex IX (9.3.2), Column 2, a study of bioaccumulation need not be conducted if the substance has a low potential for bioaccumulation (based on a log Pow <3. Diethyl phthalate has a log Pow of 2.2 and waiving of the data requirement is justified on the basis of the stated criterion.

BCF has been calculated using the computer program BCFBAF (v3.01). It is predicted that the substance has BCF of 13.1 L/kg wet weight, indicating a low potential for bioaccumulation and supporting the justification for waiving of the test requirement.
