Additional information

The studies on aquatic toxicity and ready biodegradability are considered to be technically not feasible due to the very high volatility of the substance (see also comment in Endpoint Summary "Henry's Law constant" in section 5.4.2). As a consequence, no reliable data on these endpoints are available.

Remark of the registrant:

The corresponding studies (i.e. for 9.1.1. Aquatic toxicity - Short-term toxicity testing on invertebrates (preferred species Daphnia, 9.1.2. Aquatic toxicity - Growth inhibition study aquatic plants (algae preferred) and 9.2.1.1. Degradation - Ready biodegradability), according to Regulation (EC) No. 1907/2006, Annex VII) have been initiated already some time ago. However until now (i.e. 2010-11-18) all attempts using the standard procedures failed and it was not possible to get reliable results – as a consequence of the high volatility of the substance from water. Investigations are ongoing in order to improve the chances to get reliable results. The registrant is working together with the corresponding test facility in order to complete the studies, but the chances for that are considered low. However in the case of obtaining reliable results, the registrant will update his registration.

The substance is listed in Annex I to Council Regulation (EC) No 2037/2000 (repealed) and in Annex I to Regulation (EC) No 1005/2009 (recast), both legal texts are on substances that deplete the ozone layer.

Conclusion on classification

Since the studies on aquatic toxicity are considered to be technically not feasible due to the very high volatility of the substance, no data on aquatic toxicity are available. As a result of the lack of data the substance does not meet the criteria for classification (environmental effects, aquatic environment) under Directive 67/548/EEC, as amended for the 28th time in Directive 2001/59/EC, Annex VI, 5.2.1.

Since the studies on aquatic toxicity are considered to be technically not feasible due to the very high volatility of the substance, no data on aquatic toxicity are available. As a result of the lack of data the substance does not meet the criteria for classification (hazardous to the aquatic environment) under Regulation (EC) 1272/2008, Annex I, Part 4, 4.1.

The substance is listed in Annex I to Council Regulation (EC) No 2037/2000 (repealed) and in Annex I to Regulation (EC) No 1005/2009 (recast), both legal texts are on substances that deplete the ozone layer. Thus according to Directive 67/548/EEC, as amended for the 28th time in Directive 2001/59/EC, Annex VI, 5.2.2.2, the substance is classified as dangerous for the environment.

The substance is listed in Annex I to Council Regulation (EC) No 2037/2000 (repealed) and in Annex I to Regulation (EC) No 1005/2009 (recast), both legal texts are on substances that deplete the ozone layer. Thus according to Regulation (EC) 1272/2008, Annex I, Part 5, 1.1, the substance is classified as hazardous to the ozone layer.
