Additional information

With all acute EC50/LC50 values > than 100 mgL and Log Kow of approximately 2.4 and a Log Koc of 1.8 the test substance, Bisphenol A, epichlorohydrin polymer, 2-methylimidazole condensate, is unlikely to have any adverse effect upon the aquatic and terrestrial compartments.

Conclusion on classification

Due to all acute aquatic EC50/LC50 values of > 100 mg/L, a Log Pow of approximately 2.4, a Log Koc of 1.8 and very low (experimantally undetectable) water solubility, the test substance does not require Classification and Labeling for adverse environmental effects.
