Description of key information

Not harmful/toxic for aquatic life

Additional information

Adequate chronic toxicity data is not available for Yellow LF 6881, therefore the aquatic toxicity assessment and classification are based on the short-term toxicity available data.

Yellow LF 6881 is a very water soluble substance, not rapidly degradable. In addition, it is characterized by a negative log Kow, which let to expect a low potential for bioaccumulation.


According to the CLP Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008, acute aquatic toxicity is normally determined using L(E)C50 data on fish, crustacean and/or an algal species. Data is available for fish Danio rerio, Daphnia magna and Pseudokirchneriella subcapitata species; these organisms cover a range of trophic levels and taxa and are considered as surrogate for all aquatic organisms.

No L(E)C50 value was recorded at concentration equal/lower than 1 mg/l, thus the classification criteria for acute (short-term) aquatic hazard (category 1) of the CLP Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 are not met.

In addition, no acute toxicity (i.e. L(E)C50) was recorded in none of the experiments conducted, up to the concentration of 100 mg/l; thus the classification criteria for long-term aquatic hazard (categories 2/3/4) of the CLP Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 are not met.

In conclusion, the outcomes of the tests performed on the three trophic levels showed that Yellow LF 6881 is not harmful/toxic for aquatic life.
