Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

The following data were obtained for the Similar Substance 01. It is expected that the Target Substance will present similar aquatic toxicity to Daphnia magna. Justification for Read Across is given in Section 13 of IUCLID.

A static test was performed according to the OECD Guideline 202 (2004) and the EU method C.2 of the Regulation EC 440/2008. 5 concentrations were used ranging from 4.6 to 100 mg/L (nominal concentration). For each test concentration and the blank control, 20 Daphnia were exposed to the test item for 48 hours. After 24 and 48 hours, the immobilised Daphnia were counted.

Potassium dichromate K2Cr2O7 was used as positive controlin a current reference study to assure that the test conditions are reliable.

At the beginning and at the end of the test, the content of the test item in the test solutions was determined using photometer-determination. The concentrations determined at the start of the test were between 45 and 81 % of the nominal concentration. At the end of the test the determined concentrations were between 94 and 108 % of the nominal concentration. Therefore, the determination of the biological results was based on geometric mean of measured concentrations.

All validity criteria were met.
