Conclusion on classification

According to Article 13 of Regulation (EC) No. 1907/2006 "General Requirements for Generation of Information on Intrinsic Properties of substances", information on intrinsic properties of substances may be generated by means other than tests e.g. from information from structurally related substances (grouping or read-across), provided that conditions set out in Annex XI are met.

Annex XI, "General rules for adaptation of this standard testing regime set out in Annexes VII to X” states that “substances whose physicochemical, toxicological and ecotoxicological properties are likely to be similar or follow a regular pattern as a result of structural similarity may be considered as a group, or ‘category’ of substances. This avoids the need to test every substance for every endpoint”.

Since the group concept is applied to the members of the alkyl sulfates category, data will be generated from a representative category member to avoid unnecessary animal testing. Additionally, once the group concept is applied, substances will be classified and labeled on this basis.

 

Classification related key information:

Biodegradation in water: readily biodegradable (EU C.4 -A)

Bioaccumulation: no potential to bioaccumulate; log Pow =< -0.866 at 20 ºC (OECD 105)

Water solubility: > 500 g/L at 20 ºC (EU method A.6)

 

Acute toxicity:

- For fish: 96h LC50 (Oncorhynchus mykiss) = 3.6 mg/L (nominal concentration, OECD 203)

- For invertebrates: 48h EC50 (Daphnia magna, mobility) = 7.1 mg/L (measured concentration, guidance similar to OECD 202)

- For algae: 72h EC50 (Desmodesmus subspicatus, growth rate) = 11 mg/L (nominal concentration EU Method C.3)

 

Chronic toxicity:

- For fish: 42d NOEC (Pimephales promelas; mortality and growth) ≥ 1.357 mg/L (measured concentration, read-across from CAS 151-21-3)

- For invertebrates: 7d NOEC (Ceriodaphnia dubia, reproduction) = 0.12 mg/L (measured concentration, EPA-600/489/001)

- For algae: 72h NOEC (Desmodesmus subspicatus, growth rate) = 3 mg/L (nominal concentration, EU Method C.3)

 

Classification justification according to CLP:

Based on the data above, C12-14AS TEA (CAS 90583-18-9) is considered to be rapidly degradable and has a low potential for bioaccumulation. The acute aquatic toxicity L(E)C50 is above 1 mg/L for fish, invertebrates and algae. Valid chronic toxicity data are also available for all trophic levels. The lowest NOEC is 0.12 mg/L (thus in a range > 0.1 to < 1 mg/L) for aquatic invertebrates. C12-14AS TEA (CAS 90583-18-9) therefore needs to be classified and labeled as environmental hazard Chronic Cat. 3 according to Regulation (EC) No.1272/2008 (CLP) and Regulation (EU) No. 286/2011 (2nd ATP).

M-factor for acute aquatic toxicity:  does not need to be assigned

M-factor for chronic aquatic toxicity: does not need to be assigned 

 

Classification justification according to DSD:

Based on the data above, C12-14AS TEA (CAS 90583-18-9) is considered to be rapidly degradable and has low potential for bioaccumulation. The acute aquatic toxicity L(E)C50 values are above 1 mg/L for fish, invertebrates and algae. C12-14AS TEA (CAS 90583-18-9) does not need to be classified and labeled as environmental hazard according to Directive 67/548/EEC.
