Conclusion on classification

Regarding all available data of the acute and/or chronic toxicity tests on aquatic organisms and taking into account the provisions laid down in Council Directive 67/548/EEC and CLP Regulation (EC) No. 1272/2008, the substance Calcium glucoheptonate does not need to be classified as hazardous to the environment.

Experimental results of the read-across Sodium gluconate have been used in order to account for Calcium glucoheptonate. Adequate long-term data are not available for the substance. Nevertheless, the substance has been assessed as readily/rapidly biodegradable.

The most sensitive aquatic short-term toxicity data was determined for Desmodesmus subspicatus in an OECD 201 study (OECD SIDS, 2004). EC50 (72 h) of > 100 mg/L and a NOEC (72 h) of 100 mg/L were reported for the read-across substance Sodium gluconate.

Based on these data, no environmental classification is triggered for the target substance Calcium glucoheptonate.
