Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

Description of key information

LC50 (14 d): > 1000 mg/kg dry weight artificial soil (limit test; OECD 207; Eisenia fetida)

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Short-term EC50 or LC50 for soil macroorganisms:
1 000 mg/kg soil dw

Additional information

The acute toxicity of peracetic acid to earthworms, Eisenia fetida, was determined in a 14-day soil exposure laboratory study conducted according to GLP and OECD 207 (Winkelmann, 2008). The concentration of test item was measured on day 0 in the stock solution via LC-MS/MS. An actual concentration of 106 % of nominal was determined, verifying the nominal application rate. The results of this limit test showed neither lethal nor sublethal effects. The LC50 was calculated to be > 1000 mg peracetic acid/kg dry weight artificial soil (corresponding to 6427 mg Peracetic acid 15%/kg soil DW).
