Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

Description of key information

A NOAEC of 0.15 mg/l Cr 3+ is cited. This equates to ca 0.7 mg/l of the substance.

Citric acid is noted to be of less hazard to aquatic organisms and is considered biodegradable.

Long term toxicity to fish is driven by the presence of the metal ion.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Fresh water fish

Fresh water fish
Effect concentration:
450 µg/L

Additional information

Headline NOAEC 150 ug/l is based on survival and vigour, but statistically uncertain reductions in length and weight occurred at 45 and 89 ug/l

Chromium III is available in natural waters and is an essential element. The metal therefore goes through biotransformation processes and is not accumulative.

Based on these charcteristics, classification as Aquatic Chronic 3 is proposed.
