Description of key information

Additional information

The substance has been shown to possess a 96-hour LC50 in freshwater fish ranging between 9640 and 10000 mg/L and a 24 hour LC50 in aquatic invertibrates of >10,000 mg/L. The 7 day toxicity threshold, approximately equivalent to the LC3, for algae was determined to be 1800 mg/L and the 16 hour toxicity threshold for microorganisms was determined to be 1050 mg/L. This substance is not considered to be acutely toxic to fish, or aquatic invertebrates, nor is it considered to be toxic to aquatic algae, cyanobacteria, or microorganisms.

Long -term aquatic toxicity testing is not proposed by the registrant as the chemical assessment does not indicate a need to investigate further effects on aquatic organisms. This is based on the knowledge that the substance has low aquatic toxicity, is readily biodegradable and has a low bioaccumulation potential.
