Description of key information

Study meets the criteria for Klimisch code 2 (reliabile with restrictions) because it followed an internationally recognised method (OECD Guideline 203) and was carried out to Good Laboratory Practice. However, there was no analytical confirmation of the test concentrations. In addition, there was a possible deviation in the salinity of the dilution water, however, Sheepshead minnows naturally occur at salinities of 34 °/oo. Therefore, it was not considered to affect the outcome of the study.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

LC50 for freshwater fish:
1 000 mg/L
LC50 for marine water fish:
1 000 mg/L

Additional information

The LC50 in freshwater fish is considered to be >1000mg/l and >10000 mg/l with marine species. The

substance is, therefore, considered not toxic to freshwater or marine fish species. Nevertheless, adequate

controls will be in place during production and use to ensure that the substance is not released to the

environment.
