Conclusion on classification

The environmental classification of the test substance is currently not harmonized according to the CLP Regulation (EC) 1272/2008 and the Dangerous Substance Directive 67/548/EC.

Based on available acute toxicity data, the lowest valid effect concentration (LC50) for freshwater aquatic organisms is 100 mg/L. Long-term studies are not available. A biodegradation study was performed equivalent to OECD guideline 301C under GLP conditions (Huntsman, 2008). Only 3.3 % degradation was observed with the test substance after 28 days (DOC removal). The results support the conclusion that the biodegradation of the test substance

is slow. Therefore, the test substance is considered not readily biodegradable. Adaptation of the micro-organisms is an important proces for the degradation rate of the test substance in the environment. Results from an OECD 301B study (BASF, 1996) indicate that the test substance show enhanced biodegradability but under acclimated conditions. Based on the results of this study the test substance is considered to be a non-persistent substance.Therefore, it should not be classified for Acute or Chronic toxicity for the aquatic environment according to Annex 1 (section 4.1.2.6) of the CLP Regulation. Based on the same criteria the substance should not be classified for the environment under the Dangerous Substance Directive 67/548/EC (see Annex VI section 5.2.1.2).
