Description of key information

NOEC (28 d) ≥ 105 µg/l based on growth rate (comparable to OECD 215)

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

In a 28 days chronic toxicity study, comparable to OECD 215, juveniles of Oncorhynchus mykiss (Crossland, N.O., 1986 and ISO/DIS 10229-1),Brachydanio rerio(zebra fish) were exposed to Erucamide at nominal concentrations of 0 (control, solvent control), 33 and 100 µg/L under flow through conditions for 28 d. Hardness, temperature, pH and dissolved oxygen were determined daily except for weekends in all test concentrations. The mean hardness was 100 mg/L CaCO3, the mean temperature was 23.1 °C, the mean pH was 7.5, the mean dissolved oxygen was 8.5 mg/L. Chemical analysis indicated that the concentrations of the test solutions were on average 96% and 105% of nominal (56 -160%). Effect concentrations were based on mean measured concentrations. There were no inhibitory effects of Erucamide on the exposed fish at the highest mean measured concentration tested (105 µg/l). Thus, a NOEC (28 d) of >= 105 µg/l resulted.
