Description of key information

BCF >  5000

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

The bioconcentration factor in fish was investigated in two GLP studies with carp according to OECD 305 completed 2000 and 2007.

The BCFs in the first study ranged from 1120 to 2780 in the test concentration 0.001mg/L (nominal) and from 2300 to 5580 in the test concentration 0.0001mg/L (nominal) during 8 weeks.

The BCFs in the second study ranged during the exposure period of 60 days from 570 to 1400 and from 620 to 1800 for the test concentrations of 0.0001mg/L and 0.00001 mg/L, respectively.


Therefore, it can be concluded that the substance has a BCF of above 5000.
