Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

Generally, a BCF/BAF in fish of ≥ 500 is indicative of the potential to bioconcentrate for classification purposes in accordance with CLP/GHS criteria. The BCF/BAF values estimated for dichloromethane are well below the cut-off values for bioaccumulation. Therefore, dichloromethane is not likely to bioaccumulate in aquatic organisms.
