Description of key information

Additional information

The aquatic bioaccumulation potential of nonanal has been assessed using screening data (log Kow of 3.4, estimated BCF of 65 to 155 L/kg). The information is deemed sufficient for classification purposes, the PBT assessment and the chemical safety assessment. Therefore aquatic bioaccumulation tests are waived.

No information on terrestrial bioaccumulation is available. As this study is not a standard requirement under REACH and there is no indication from the CSA on the need to investigate further the fate and behaviour of the substance, no further testing is considered necessary.
