The T-value in the score for hazard refers to chronic toxicity. Underlying data for P, B, T and risk are from Fass.
Fass environmental information
Fass environmental information for Cordarone (amiodarone) (downloaded 2018-08-20).
Persistence: "Test showed 0% degradation in 28 days (OECD 301B). Amiodarone fails to pass the criteria for ready biodegradability which justifies the phrase “Amiodarone is potentially persistent”."
Bioaccumulation: Log Pow = 7.57 "(experimental data, method unknown)."
Toxicity: There are data for 3 trophic levels, most sensitive algae (Pseudokirchneriella subcapitata) NOEC 72 hours = 12 microg/L.
PEC/PNEC is based on sales data in Sweden in year 2015. PEC / PNEC = 0.18034 which gives the risk low.
