Secondary poisoning

Hazard assessment conclusion:
no potential for bioaccumulation

Additional information

The most sensitive species is Daphnia with an EC50 = 3.9mg/L for short term studies and NOEC= 3.6 mg/L for long term studies

For the others species, not toxicity was found.

Conclusion on classification

The substance is not “readily biodegradable” and not “inherent biodegradable”.

The substance has no bioaccumulation potential.

The acutely toxic effects on organisms like fish and algae, are conclusive but not sufficient for classification. effect on Daphnia were observed.

Classification according to Annex VI of Directive 67/548/EEC: TEPA is classified as R51/R53 for the environment (based on the toxicology observed on Daphnia).

CLP classification according to Regulation EC 1272/2008 including ATP2 : Aquatic chronic 2 H411

GHS classification (GHS UN rev.2, 2007): Aquatic acute 2: H401 and Aquatic Chronic 2: H411
