Additional information

According to Regulation (EC) 1907/2006 Annex IX, Section 9.3.2, Column 2, the study does not need to be conducted since the substance has a log Kow less or equal than 3. Ethylene glycol has a log Kow of -1.36 (see IUCLID Ch. 4.7). Therefore, and for reasons of animal welfare, an experimental study on bioaccumulation is not provided.
