Additional information

Ecotoxicity studies with closely related source substances partially unsaturated TEA-Esterquat and fully saturated TEA-Esterquat did not show acute toxicity values < 1 mg/L.

Short-term toxicity to aquatic organisms

Fish: LC50(96 h) = 1.91 mg/L

Crustacea: EC50(24 h) = 2.23 mg/L 

Algae or aquatic plants: ErC50= 2.14 mg/L

 

Long-term toxicity to aquatic organisms

Algae: ErC10 (72 h) = 1.48 mg/L resulting from a Weight of Evidence approach from 5 valid and comparable studies (OECD 201)

Conclusion on classification

According to GHS Regulation EC No 1272/2008, Fatty acids, C18 unsatd., mono and diester with triethanolamine , di-Me sulfate-quaternized does not need to be classified as “hazardous to the aquatic environment” (acute/short-term, long-term) and does not need to be classified as “hazardous to the ozone layer”. Therefore labelling is not applicable.
