Description of key information

The toxicity of the substance has been measured experimentally in marine fish species (sheepshead minnows). Due to the extremely low water solubility of the target substance (TS), the study was conducted using Water Soluble Fractions (WSF) and completed as limit tests.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

LC50 for freshwater fish:
1 000 mg/L
LC50 for marine water fish:
10 000 mg/L

Additional information

The 96 -h LL50 of the TS to marine fish is >10000mg/l. The substance is, therefore, considered not toxic to saltwater fish. Based on read across from structural analog data, the substance is expected to be non-toxic to freshwater fish species as well (96 -h LL50 > 1000 mg/L).

Nevertheless, adequate controls will be in place during production and use to ensure that the substance is not released to the environment.
