Tests on the chronic toxicity in fish is not deemed necessary

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

In Annex IX of Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006, it is laid down that chronic tests shall be proposed by the registrant if the chemical safety assessment indicates the need to investigate further the effects on fish. According to Annex I of this regulation, the chemical safety assessment triggers further action when the substance or the preparation meets the criteria for classification as dangerous according to Directive 67/548/EEC or Directive 1999/45/EC or CLP Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 or is assessed to be a PBT or vPvB. The hazard assessment of the substance reveals neither a need to classify the substance as dangerous to the environment, nor is it a PBT or vPvB substance, nor are there any further indications that the substance may be hazardous to the environment. Comparing the acute toxicity values of all three trophic levels, fish is the least sensitive trophic level, while aquatic invertebrates show the highest sensitivity. Long-term toxicity testing is not triggered by the results of the exposure assessment and the risk characterization. The risk-characterisation ratios (RCR) do not indicate a risk for the environment (RCR < 1). Therefore, and for reasons of animal welfare, a chronic test in fish is not provided.
