Reference
Endpoint:
bioaccumulation in aquatic species: fish
Data waiving:
study scientifically not necessary / other information available
Justification for data waiving:
the study does not need to be conducted because the substance has a low potential for bioaccumulation based on log Kow <=3
Justification for type of information:
In addition to the low Kow (-0.72), the substance is readily biodegradable and part of metabolism processes in most organisms. Hence, lactic acid is unlikely to bioconcentrate.
Test material information:
Composition 1

Description of key information

The study has not to be conducted, as the potential for bioaccumulation is extremely low, regarding the Kow of -0.72, the readily biodegradability and the presence in metabolism processes in most organisms. Hence, lactic acid is unlikely to bioconcentrate.

Key value for chemical safety assessment
