Description of key information

Valid acute studies based on international guidelines are available for the three aquatic trophic levels (algae, aquatic invertebrates and fish). Among all data available, a toxic effect was observed for the three aquatic trophic levels. The fish, Danio rerio, is the most sensitive species with a 96h-LC50 value at 11.3 mg/L based on analytically confirmed nominal concentrations. For the algae, Pseudokirchneriella subcapitata, the 72h- ErC50, 72h-ErC10 and 72h-NOECr values based on growth rate are 55, 13 and 3.2 mg/L, respectively, based on time-weighted average concentrations. As the ratio NOEC/LOEC is higher than 3.2, the NOECr for the algae test is considered unacceptable and the 72h-ErC10 has been used as critical value. For the aquatic invertebrates, Daphnia magna, the 48h-EC50 value was determined to be 21 mg/L based on analytically confirmed nominal concentrations. In addition, the registered substance was not toxic to activated sludge of a municipal sewage treatment plant up to the nominal concentration of 100 mg/L.

Additional information

Although not requested under REACH Annex VII, the vertebrate acute fish study was performed to comply with worldwide regulations.
