Description of key information

Short-term toxicity data were extracted from literature for bacteria (heterotrophs and nitrifiers) and different protozoan species. 2 different no-effect levels for lead, between 1.06 and 2.92 mg/L (depending on the exposure time), were compiled for heterotrophic bacteria. For nitrifiers, 2 different no-effect concentrations, between 2.79 and 9.59 mg/L, were observed. 14 different short-term toxicity data were selected for protozoan species/communities. No-effect concentrations for protozoan communities varied between 1.0 and 7.0 mg Pb/L, while LC50 values for protozoan varied between <1.5 and >250.0 mg/L.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

EC10, LC10 or NOEC for microorganisms:
1 mg/L
