Additional information

Conclusion on classification

Aquatic compartment:

 

Harmonized classification regarding environmental hazards

In accordance with Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008, Annex VI Table 3.1 or Table 3.2, propylenediamine is officially not classified.

Self-classification regarding environmental hazards

Following GHS, the substance is not to be classified as acutely or chronically hazardous to the aquatic environment.

Rationale:

The substance is not to be classified as acutely hazardous to the aquatic environment, since the lowest acute effect value is > 1 mg/L.

Chronic data are available for algae and dapnids, but not for fish. Therefore classification is based on the available chronic and acute toxicity data.

 

- Chronic toxicity data:

Chronic data are available for algae (72-h NOErC= 62.5 mg/L) and daphnids (21-d NOEC = 6.14).

The substance is rapidly degradable and the 21-d NOECis > 1 mg/L. According to the criteria outlined in Table 4.1.0(b) (ii) (Commission Regulation (EU) No 286/2011 amending Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008) the substance is not to be classified based on the available chronic data.

 

- Acute toxicity data:

Fish is the trophic levels not covered by chronic data. Therefore classification is based on the respective acute effect data.

The 96-h LC50 for fish is 460 mg/L. Moreover, the substance is rapidly degradable. Therefore the substance is not to be classified as chronically hazardous based on acute toxicity data.

 

It can be concluded that the substance is not to be classified as chronically hazardous to the aquatic environment.
