Conclusion on classification

Classification related key information

Log Kow:           8.94 (OECD 117)

Water solubility: 0.0032 mg/L (literature data)

Biodegradation:  > 90 % in 28 days (OECD 301F)

BCF:                  27 L/kg (28 d uptake and 14 d depuration bioconcentration study) 

 

Aquatic acute toxicity:

For fish: LC50 (96h)         > limit of water solubility (EPA-66013-75-009)

For algae: EC50 (72h)       > limit of water solubility (DIN 38412, part 9))

For crustacea: EC50 (48h) > limit of water solubility (EU method C.2)

 

Aquatic chronic toxicity:

For fish: no data

For algae: NOEC (72h)       > limit of water solubility (EPA-600/9-78-018)

For crustacea: NOEC (21d) > limit of water solubility (OECD 211)

 

Classification according to CLP

Based on the data above, Bis(2-ethylhexyl) adipate (CAS 103-23-1, DEHA) is considered to be rapidly degradable. No acute aquatic toxicity was observed up to the water solubility limit for fish, invertebrates and algae. Valid chronic data are available with no effects on algal growth reproduction of Daphnia magna up to the water solubility limit. Therefore, DEHA does not need to be classified and labelled as acute aquatic hazard according to the 2nd ATP of the Regulation (EC) No. 1272/2008 (CLP).

 

Classification according to DSD

Based on the data above, DEHA is rapidly degradable and is considered to have a low potential for accumulation. No effects occurred up to its solubility limit in acute tests for fish, invertebrates and algae. Therefore, DEHA does not need to be classified and labelled as environmental hazard according to Directive 67/548/EEC.
