Description of key information

A study was performed to assess the effect of dioctyltin on the mortality and reproduction to Daphnia magna over a 21-day period. The method followed that described in the OECD Guidelines for Testing of Chemicals No 202. The test was preformed under semi static conditions using triethylene glycol and a vehicle.
The 21 day NOEC of DOTC in Daphnia magna for survival was 0.41 mg/L, the LOEC was 0.87 mg/L. The reproduction in any test solution was not statistically different from the control. Therefore, the 21 day NOEC for reproduction was ≥ 0.87 mg/L.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

EC10, LC10 or NOEC for freshwater invertebrates:
0.41 mg/L

Additional information

A reliability rating of 2 was assigned to this study, according to the criteria of Klimisch, 1997 as the study conducted in accordance with generally accepted scientific principles, possibly with incomplete reporting or methodological deficiencies, which do not affect the quality of the relevant results.
