Conclusion on classification

Decanol, branched and linear is readily biodegradable and algal inhibition data indicate that the NOEC is between 0.01 and 0.1 mg/l (72h NOEC 0.028 mg/l).

Therefore, the substance is classified as Chronic Category 2 for the environment in the EU according to Regulation (EC) No. 1272/2008.
