Conclusion on classification

According to Article 13 of Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006 "General Requirements for Generation of Information on Intrinsic Properties of substances", information on intrinsic properties of substances may be generated by means other than tests e.g. from information from structurally related substances (grouping or read-across), provided that conditions set out in Annex XI are met. In Annex XI, "General rules for adaptation of this standard testing regime set out in Annexes VII to X”, it is stated that “substances whose physicochemical, toxicological and ecotoxicological properties are likely to be similar or follow a regular pattern as a result of structural similarity may be considered as a group, or ‘category’ of substances. This avoids the need to test every substance for every endpoint”.

A read-across approach was applied to this substance and data was compiled from representative source substances to avoid unnecessary animal testing. The target substance will be classified and labelled on this basis.

 

Environmental fate

Water solubility:

< 0.05 mg/L at 20 °C (EU method A. 6); read-across

Partition coefficient:

log Pow > 10 (QSAR, Vega 1.1.3)

Degradation:

Readily biodegradable: 75.3% BOD after 28 d (OECD 301 C); read-across

 

 

Aquatic short-term toxicity

algae:

No effects up to the limit of water solubility (OECD 201, D. subspicatus); read-across

 

Aquatic long-term toxicity

aquatic invertebrates:

No effects up to the limit of water solubility (OECD 211, D. magna); read-across

algae:

No effects up to the limit of water solubility (OECD 201, D. subspicatus); read-across

 

Conclusion on CLP

Data for acute and chronic toxicity is available for two trophic levels (aquatic invertebrates and algae). The substance is readily biodegradable and neither short-term nor long-term toxic effects towards aquatic freshwater organisms of neither trophic level were observed up to the limit of the water solubility of the substance (< 0.05 mg/L at 20 °C). Therefore, the substance is not classified and labelled for environmental hazards according to the consolidated version of Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 (dated: 01.01.2017) and further amendments (ATPs).
