Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

Information on short term toxicity to aquatic invertebrates was available for vacuum gas oils, hydrocracked gas oils and distillate fuels. The 48 h EL50 for Daphnia was 68 mg/L. This data is from Shell report 6304 (1996). This is the most conservative value from the two key studies. This study is a GLP compliant, guideline study (reliability 2).

A wide range of values have been reported for the supporting studies, they have not been considered for use as key studies because insufficient information was supplied to determine whether they meet the validity criteria of the test methods.
