Any other information on results incl. tables

The validity criteria were met.

The half-life of SAT 020874 in the test medium was determined with 1.3 hours. As the test was performed as a flow-through test with a minimum test medium renewal of 4 times per hour, it can be assumed that the concentration of the test item has stayed above 80 % throughout the test. Thus the result of the test can be considered valid.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Validity criteria fulfilled:
yes
Executive summary:

In the initial experiment, four concentrations of the test item in a geometric series (spaced by factor 10, the highest being 100 mg/L) were used. For each concentration, three fish were exposed to the test item for 96 hours. At the tested concentrations, no fish showed any signs of morbidity at the end of the test. The pH and the oxygen value of the treatments were normal. The main study was performed as a limittest using a nominal concentration of 100 mg/L. No fish showed any signs of morbidity at the end of the test.

In phase 2 of the study, the half-life of the test item using a concentration of 100 mg/l in dilution water was tested. A value of 1,3 hours was determined. In order to keep a concentration level of 80 % of the test item, the flow-through System was Set to a

medium exchange of 4-fold per hour. The following result for the test item SAT 020874 could be determined:

96h-LC50 = > 100 mg/L
