Description of key information

Additional information

The substance possess a 96-hour LC50 in freshwater fish of >100 mg/L; a 48 hour EC50 in aquatic invertebrates of > 100 mg/L; and a 72-hour EC50 in aquatic algae and cyanobacteria of >100 mg/L. This substance is not considered to be acutely toxic to fish, or aquatic invertebrates, nor is it considered to be toxic to aquatic algae or cyanobacteria. 

 

Although information on the substance was not available for microorganisms, based on studies in glucose and maltose, in accordance with section 1 of Annex XI, the activated sludge respiration inhibition test (required in Annex VIII section 9.1.4) does not need to be conducted as it is scientifically reasonable to expect that the notifiable substance will not significantly inhibit activated sludge respiration.

 

The requirement to present data for endpoints on fish early life stage toxicity test, fish short term toxicity test on embryo and sac-fry, fish juvenile growth test, long term toxicity to aquatic invertebrates, sediment toxicity, and short- and long-term toxicity to invertebrates (terrestrial) is not proposed by the registrant.
