Description of key information

No long-term toxicity to aquatic invertebrates data are available.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

The provision for long-term toxicity testing on aquatic invertebrates is contained within Column 1 of Annexes VIII and IX of REACH. Column 2 of each of these Annexes, describing the Specific Rules for Adaptation from Column 1, states:

"Long-term toxicity testing shall be proposed by the registrant if the chemical safety assessment according to Annex I indicates the need to investigate further the effects on aquatic organisms."

The data available for the substance indicate it is not hazardous. Consequently, the substance does not require classification nor a full chemical safety assessment (comprising hazard assessment, exposure assessment, and risk characterisation) under REACH. Ipso facto, in accordance with the Standard Information Requirements laid down by REACH (Annexes VII to X), long-term toxicity testing on aquatic invertebrates is not necessary.
