Description of key information

In a ready biodegradability test no toxic effects to microorganisms were observed after incubation with 3 mg/L test substance.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

EC10 or NOEC for microorganisms:
3 mg/L

Additional information

According to the ECHA Guidance document R7b, no further test on the toxicity to microorganisms has to be conducted if the toxicity control in a ready biodegradability test shows no inhibitory effects on microorganisms. As the toxicity control in the closed bottle ready biodegradability test showed no inhibition of the microbial activity at a substance concentration of 3 mg/L, no further test is necessary to evaluate the respiration inhibition of activated sludge.
