Description of key information

96-h test on fish: LC50 > 100 mg/l

48 -h test on aquatic invertebrates: EC50 = 235 mg/l

7 -day test on aquatic plants: ErC50 = 318 mg/l for frond number

Additional information

Justification for classification or non-classification

According to the CLP Regulation (EC 1272/2008), the threshold of classification of a substance for acute aquatic toxicity is 1 mg/l. This limit is compared with LC50 (96h ) for fish, EC50 (48h) for daphnia, EC50 (72 -96 h) for algae and EC50 (7 d) for other aquatic plants.

As for chronic toxicity, in case of lack of chronic data, the toxic potential is identified by appropriate combinations of acute toxicity data and lack of biodegradability. The threshold of classification is 100 mg/l.

Available EC50 values are indicative of a low aquatic toxicity of test substance, implying no classification for both acute and chronic toxicity within the CLP Regulation (EC 1272/2008).
