Ecotoxicological information

Long-term toxicity to aquatic invertebrates

Administrative data

Endpoint:
long-term toxicity to aquatic invertebrates
Type of information:
experimental study planned
Justification for type of information:
Acute toxicity tests are available for benzyltoluene for three trophic levels in GLP and OECD TG compliant studies. No adverse effect was seen up to the water solubility limit of benzyltoluene in any of these studies. Therefore, since the registered substance is concerned by annexe IX of REACh regulation EC 1907/2006, a data gap is identified. A long-term toxicity test on invertebrates is proposed for benzyltoluene (CAS number 27776-01-8). The registrants intend to follow OECD 211 Test Guideline for this test.
