Hazard assessment conclusion:
no hazard identified

Hazard for terrestrial organisms

Soil

Hazard assessment conclusion:
PNEC soil
PNEC value:
0.007 mg/kg soil dw
Extrapolation method:
equilibrium partitioning method

Hazard for predators

Secondary poisoning

Hazard assessment conclusion:
no potential for bioaccumulation

Additional information

PNEC oral: octanolamine meets the criteria for ready biodegradation and has a log Kow of 1,3 indicating no potential for bioaccumulation, therefore the PNEC oral was not calculated.

Conclusion on classification

Octanolamine is readily biodegradable and the acute toxicity on three freshwater species from three trophic levels was greater than 10mg/L, therefore according to the Dangerous substances directive and the Classification, Labelling and Packaging directive criteria, octanolamine is not classified for the environment.
