Description of key information

A test on reproduction of Daphnia magna was performed according to the OECD Guideline 211 in a semistatic system. Test parameters were mortality, reproduction, the age at first reproduction and the size of the parent animals at the end of the test. The NOEC based on reproduction was found to be 3.2 mg/L. Analytical measurements revealed that the formaldehyde content remained stable at >80% of the initial values over the exposure period. Therefore, for deriving the effect values the nominal values can be used.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

EC10, LC10 or NOEC for freshwater invertebrates:
3.2 mg/L
