Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

Description of key information

The substance is not considered as hazardous for the environment. Therefore, a chronic test in fish is not provided.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

In Annex XI Section 3, it is laid down that testing in accordance with sections 8.6 and 8.7 of Annex VIII and in accordance with Annex IX may be omitted, based on the exposure scenario(s) developed in the Chemical Safety Report (“Substance-Tailored Exposure-Driven Testing”). In accordance with Annex XI Section 3, it can be demonstrated in the risk assessment that the manufacture and the use of the substance do not pose an unacceptable risk for all environmental compartments as the risk characterization ratios (RCRs) of the chemical safety assessment are below 1 for all compartments (see Chemical Safety Report Ch. 9, 10).

Considering the possibility for the prediction of relative species sensitivities according to the REACH Guidance Document R.7b (ECHA, June 2017, v4.0), chapter R., further testing on fish would not contribute to improve the current knowledge of the substance and/or its associated risk when released to the aquatic compartment. This conclusion is based on reliable and valid short-term (fish, aquatic invertebrates, algae) and long-term (aquatic invertebrates, algae) data which clearly demonstrate that fish is not the most sensitive trophic level. A detailed description of this approach is given in the attached justification document: 109-55-7_Waiver_Long-term Fish_2022-06-15.pdf.

Therefore, and for reasons of animal welfare, a long-term toxicity test on fish is not provided.
