exposure considerations
Justification for data waiving:
Justification for type of information:
exposure considerations - There is no concern for relevant exposure of sediment organisms to the test substance. As calculated by EUSES, if BNMA is released into water, it mainly remains in the water and is predicted to partition only to a small degree into sediment. Therefore, the expected hazard to sediment organisms is low due to the level of ecotoxic potential derived from tests with aquatic organisms compared to the expected exposure concentration calculated by EUSES. Furthermore, BNMA is readily biodegradable and estimated log Koc of BNMA is 2.57 (Kow method, estimated with EPIWEB version 4.1, KOCWIN v2.00) which demonstrates that adsorption to sediment is not expected.
