Aquatic PNECs were derived using the PETROTOX model and the soil and sediment PNECs were calculated using the equilibrium partitioning coefficient.
The available aquatic ecotoxicity data is presented in section 6 of IUCLID. These data result in the following classifications:
Acute and chronic 1
At carbon numbers from C8-C10, alkenes would be classified as R50/53 under the DSD and as both Acute and Chronic Category 1 under the EU CLP Regulations. At carbon numbers above this, acute toxicity is not observed at the limits of solubility.
The carbon number range of alkenes C11 -12 covers this boundary. Therefore, the lower carbon number components are acutely toxic at concentrations below their solubility whilst the higher carbon number components show no acute toxicity. A UVCB that covers this carbon number range may or may not therefore express this toxicity, dependant on the proportion of the differing carbon lengths. To cover this eventuality, it is decided to adopt a precautionary attitude (in the absence of data on the specific substance) and assign the classification of 'R50/R53 very toxic to aquatic organisms and may cause long term adverse effects in the aquatic environment' under the DSD Directive and ‘Acute and Chronic Category 1’ under the EU CLP Regulations.
Information on Registered Substances comes from registration dossiers which have been assigned a registration number. The assignment of a registration number does however not guarantee that the information in the dossier is correct or that the dossier is compliant with Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006 (the REACH Regulation).
