Description of key information

The potential for bioaccumulation of the target substance Pentaerythritol, mixed esters with linear and branched fatty acids is assumed to be low based on all available data. The same is expected for the selected source substances. None of the these has any specific property and/or (alert)structure leading to bioaccumulation compared to the target substance.

 

Experimental bioaccumulation data are not available for the target substance Pentaerythritol, mixed esters with linear and branched fatty acids. The high logKow(>10) as an intrinsic chemical property of the substance indicates a potential for bioaccumulation. However, the information gathered on environmental behavior, bioavailability and metabolism, in combination with QSAR-estimated values, provide enough evidence (in accordance to the Regulation (EC) No1907/2006, Annex XI General rules for adaptation of the standard testing regime set out in Annexes VII to X, 1.2), to cover the data requirements of Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006, Annex IX to state that the substance is likely to show.
