Additional information

Conclusion on classification

No effects were observed at a concentration of 89.2 mg/L in Daphnia magna. As this is based on data provided by ECHA, full details on this value are not available although this is possibly the highest concentration tested. In Algae a 72 hr NOEC of 69.98 mg/L is provided, again with no indications why higher values were not tested. In an acute toxicity study to fish a 96 hr LC50 of 33.5 mg/L is available, which is the key value for safety assessment as fish appear to be the most sensitive trophic level. Based on this value, no classification in accordance with the CLP regulation (1272/2008, as amended) is relevant for this substance in relation to aquatic acute toxicity. When considering Chronic toxicity, the only available result is an algae study NOEC of 69.98 mg/L. As the substance is not readily biodegradable (not fulfilling 10 -day window criterion), consideration of the acute data is applicable in this case. As the lowest acute LC/EC50 value is > 10 and < 100 mg/L (fish), classification as Aquatic Chronic. 3 is deemed appropriate for this substance.
