Description of key information

With high probability acutely not harmful to soil macroorganisms. NOEC (14d) >= 1000 mg/kg soil dw  (nominal) for Eisenia fetida (OECD 207)

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

For the ‘yellow disazo condensation pigments’ (CAS 5580-57-4 and CAS 79953-85-8) the acute toxicity on earthworms (Eisenia fetida) was investigated in GLP guideline studies according to OECD 207 (BASF, 2012; BASF, 2013). The tests are conducted up to a maximum concentration of 1000 mg/kg soil dw. After 14 days of exposure no toxic effects on the earthworms were observed.
