Hazard for terrestrial organisms

Soil

Hazard assessment conclusion:
PNEC soil
PNEC value:
1.5 mg/kg soil dw
Extrapolation method:
equilibrium partitioning method

Hazard for predators

Secondary poisoning

Hazard assessment conclusion:
no potential for bioaccumulation

Additional information

PNEC sediment and PNEC soil were calculated by the equilibrium partitioning method since no measured data were available. In order to be able to use the method for the environmetally relevant formate ion, the Koc and HLC were taken by read across from formic acid (CAS 64 -18 -6) / formate.

Conclusion on classification

Aquatic compartment

Following DSD/DPD, the substance is not to be classifed as dangerous for the environment since the the lowest LC/EC50 values are > 100 mg/L. Moreover, the substance is readily biodegradable and the log Pow is < 3 (no experimentally determined BCF).

Following GHS, the substance is not to be classified as hazardous to the aquatic environment since the the lowest LC/EC50 values are > 100 mg/L. Moreover, the substance is readily biodegradable and the log Pow is < 4 (no experimentally determined BCF). The NOEC values for chronic toxicity are > 1 mg/L.

Atmospheric compartment

The test substance is not in Annex I of Regulation (EC) 2037/2000 on substances that deplete the ozone layer.

The test substance does not belong to the green house gases listed in P Forster, PV Ramaswamy et al. Changes in Atmospheric Constituents and in Radiative Forcing. In: Climate Change 2007: The Physical Basis. Contribution of Working Group I to the Fourth Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on climate Change.
