Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.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 high quality chronic database for lead contains freshwater toxicity data for 2 rotifer species (B. calyciflorus; P. rapida), 3 insects (B. tricaudus; C. tentans; C. riparius), 3 mollusc species (L. stagnalis; L. palustris; L. siliquoidea), 5 crustacean species (C. dubia; D. magna; H. azteca; D. birgei; A. rectangula). The chronic freshwater no-effect levels for these invertebrates were situated between 0.48* µg dissolved Pb/L (Lymnaea stagnalis; endpoint: reproduction; *NB EC10 extrapolated below the lowest tested concentration) and 963 µg dissolved Pb/L (Chironomus riparius; endpoint: mortality).


Chronic marine NOEC/L(E)C10 values are available for 3 echinoderms (Strongylocentrotus purpuratus, Dendraster excentricus, Paracentrotus lividus), 5 bivalve molluscs (Mytilus galloprovincialis, Mytilus trossolus, Perna viridis, Crassostrea gigas, Ruditapes decussatus), 1 annelid (Neanthes arenaceodentata), 3 crustaceans (Americamysis bahia, Penaeus monodon and Tisbe battagliai). No-effect levels for dissolved lead for marine invertebrates were situated between 9.0 µg dissolved Pb/L (Mytilus trossolus; endpoint: development) and 1409.6 µg dissolved Pb/L (Mytilus galloprovincialis; endpoint: mortality).
