Additional information

PNECs were derived from the most sensitive test available for each compartment/endpoint.

Conclusion on classification

Acute toxicity:

Algae is the most sensitive species with an EC50 value of 1.34 mg/L (growth rate). According to 67/548/EEC and Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 (CLP, GHS) the substance has not to be classified regarding acute toxicity to the environment as the lowest LD50 value is above 1 mg/L.

Chronic toxicity:

Algae is the most sensitive species with an acute EC50 of 1.34 mg/L (growth rate). The substance is not ready biodegradable. Based on these findings benyldimethylamine was classified for chronic toxicity as N, R51/53 (Dangerous for the environment; Toxic to aquatic organisms, may cause long-term adverse effects in the aquatic environment.) according to directive 67/548/EEC and chronic env. tox. cat. 2 (H411: Toxic to aquatic life with long lasting effects) according to Regulation No (EC) 1272/2008 (CLP/GHS). The legal classification according to Regulation No (EC) 1272/2008/ (CLP/GHS) is chronic env. tox. cat. 3 (H412: Harmful to aquatic life with long lasting effects).
