Description of key information

Additional information

Adequate chronic toxicity data are not available; Fluorescent Brightener 002 is not readily biodegradable; details about water solubility and partition coefficient currently are not available because the related experiments are still running.

On the basis of the available studies, no L(E)C50 value was recorded at concentration equal/lower than 1 mg/l, thus the classification criteria for acute (short-term) aquatic hazard (category 1) of the CLP Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 are not met.

In addition, no acute toxicity (i.e. L(E)C50) was recorded in none of the experiments conducted, up to the higher concentration reached in the tests; thus the classification criteria for long-term aquatic hazard (categories 1/2/3/4) of the CLP Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 are not met.

Since the test on the toxicity to aquatic plants is still running, the classification evaluation will be confirmed and, eventually, updated as soon as all the experiments will be finished.
