Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

The results from short-term toxicity tests on fish, Daphnia and algae demonstrate that invertebrates are the most sensitive trophic level tested.

Therefore, it may be concluded that results from a long-term test in fish would not reveal a greater hazard than already determined by the available acute and chronic data.

Moreover, the chemical safety assessment for the substance demonstrates that

1) the exposure levels estimated in all relevant scenarios do not exceed the appropriate PNEC, and 2) the likelihood and severity of an event occurring due to the physicochemical properties of the substance in the aquatic environment are negligible; therefore, the criteria for adaptation are met.

Specifically, all risk characterization ratios are under 1.0; and there are no physicochemical hazards identified for this substance in the aquatic environment.

Therefore, and for reasons of animal welfare, a chronic test on fish is not provided.
