Additional information

Conclusion on classification

Justification for classification

According to Article 13 "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.

 

Brief description of the data relevant for classification

 

Degradation

Biodegradation: 89% of O2 consumption (OECD 301 D, read across)

 

Aquatic acute toxicity

For fish: 96h, LC50 (D. rerio): No effects up to the limit of water solubility; read across

For aquatic invertebrates: 48h, EC50 (D. magna): No effects up to the limit of water; read across solubility

For algae/aquatic plants: 72h, EC50 (S. subspicatus): No effects up to the limit of water solubility; read across

 

Aquatic chronic toxicity

For fish: no data available

For aquatic invertebrates: 21d, NOEC (D. magna): No effects up to the limit of water solubility; read across

For algae/aquatic plants: 72h, EC50 (S. subspicatus): No effects up to the limit of water solubility; read across

 

Conclusion on classification

CLP:

Based on the data above, Fatty acids, C8-10, octyl esters (CAS 91031-98-0) is considered to be readily biodegradable. The substance is poorly soluble in water, and no effects occurred up to its water solubility limit in acute tests with fish, algae and daphnia. Valid chronic toxicity data are available for daphnia and algae. No chronic effects were observed up to the limit of water solubility. Therefore, Fatty acids, C8-10, octyl esters (CAS 91031-98-0) does not need to be classified and labelled as environmental hazard according to the 2nd ATP of the Regulation (EC) No.1272/2008 (CLP).

 

DSD:

The substance is poorly soluble in water, and no effects occurred up to its solubility limit in acute tests with fish, algae and daphnia. Therefore, Fatty acids, C8-10, octyl esters (CAS 91031-98-0) does not need to be classified and labelled as environmental hazard according to Directive 67/548/EEC.
