In up-to-date assessment, latest and more reliable data are found and
hence used for the estimation of PNEC values. This also led to the
change in classification from R51/53 to R50/53.
In Directive 67/548/EEC and the regulation (EC) No 1272/2008,
2-(morpholin-4-ylsulfanyl) -1,3-benzothiazole has been legally
classified as "Toxic to aquatic organisms, may cause long-term adverse
effects in the aquatic environment" with the phrase of R 51/53 in Annex
I and aquatic chronic 2 (H411), respectively. According to the
up-to-date information listed below, a stricter self-classification has
been proposed in this dossier as “Very toxic to aquatic organisms, may
cause long-term adverse effects in the aquatic environment" with the
phrase of R 50/53 and aquatic acute 1 (H400) and aquatic chronic 1
- The most sensitive acute toxicity is to fish (Oncorhynchus mykiss): 96
hour-LC50 of 0.31 mg/L (Monsanto, 1981a).
- The most sensitive chronic toxicity of MBT (read-across of one main
degradation product) was determined in a long-term study with fish
(rainbow trout): NOEC (89d) of 0.041 mg/L (CMA, 1989).
- Measured log Pow of 3.4 (Currenta, 2010c), which is higher than 3.
- MBS is not readily biodegradable (Bayer AG, 1988a).
With the data listed above, MBS should be classified as aquatic acute 1
(H400) and aquatic chronic 1 (410) according to GHS (Regulation EC
1272/2008) and as R50/53 according the Directive 67/548/EEC. The
appropriate multiplying factors for acute and chronic toxicity are both
