Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

No information available. Toxicity to sediment organisms is not a standard requirement according to Annex IX of Regulation (EC) No. 1907/2006 and there is no indication from the CSA according to Annex I on the need to investigate further the effects on sediment organisms. The substance has a low potential for adsorption to sediment particles indicated by a log Kow of 1.31 and a log Koc of 1 - 1.52. Moreover, the environmental exposure assessment for1,3-butylene diacetate (CAS 1117-31-3) according to Annex XI, Section 3 of Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006 indicates no risk for the sediment compartment (all RCR < 1; please refer to Chapter 9 and 10 of the Chemical Safety Report for detailed information). Thus, a study with sediment organisms is not deemed necessary.
