Results and discussion

Effect concentrations
Duration:
96 h
Dose descriptor:
NOEC
Effect conc.:
>= 0.05 mg/L
Results with reference substance (positive control):
Result for 10 fish with refernce substance potassium chromate (K2Cr2O7) was equal to standard result at the laboratory.
Reported statistics and error estimates:
Not possible to perform.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Validity criteria fulfilled:
yes
Conclusions:
The test substance did not show any effect on fish up to the solubility limit of 0.05 mg/l. NOEC was not possible to determine, but the registrant conclusion is that Gelpaste Urea not is acute toxic to fish.
