Additional information

Toxicity to soil macroorganisms except arthropods

The lethal concentration (LC50) of 5-nitrosalicylic acid in soil macroorganism [Eisenia fetida (worms)] in a long term toxicity study of 14 days on the basis of mortality effect was estimated to be 304.266 mg/kg soil dw.

Toxicity to terrestrial arthropods

The lethal concentration (LC50) value of 5-nitrosalicylic acid in terrestrial arthropods (Tetranychus urticae) in a 48 hr study on the basis of mortality effect was estimated to be 363.167 mg/l.

Toxicity to terrestrial plants

The lethal concentration (LC50) of 5-nitrosalicylic acid in terrestrial plants (Lactuca sativa) in short term toxicity study of 72 hrs. on the basis of germination effect was estimated to be 13.89 mg/l.

Toxicity to soil microorganisms

The no observed effect level (NOEL) value of 5-nitrosalicylic acid in soil microorganisms (Aspergillus parasiticus) in a 7 days study on the basis of population effect was estimated to be 12.0309 mg/l.

Toxicity to birds

No information on toxicity to birds available. Toxicity to birds is not a standard information requirement in Annex IX. Moreover, as the substance is not toxic to mammals (not classified for toxicity) no further toxicity testing on birds is proposed.

Toxicity to other above-ground organisms

No experimental data in addition to those presented under CSR Chapter 5 is available. This is not a standard information requirement for environment in REACH.
