Justification for data waiving:
Justification for type of information:
According to REACH Annex XI, Section 3 certain information requirements in Annex IX and X based on exposure scenarios developed as part of a CSA can be omitted.
Butyl benzoate is readily biodegradable, has a low potential for bioaccumulation (Log Kow = 3.3, Log BCF 2.2; per dossier) and is rapidly metabolized to innocuous substances (i.e., benzoic acid and corresponding alcohol, butanol) and excreted within 24 hours (Becker et al., 2012). The CSA adequately addresses the relevant exposure scenario, all RCRs are well below 1 and accordingly, the need to investigate further the effects on aquatic organisms is not indicated.
