Applicant's summary and conclusion

Conclusions:
The substance was tested for acute toxicity to aquatic invertebrates following OECD 202. Under the experimental conditions the 48-h EC50 > 100 mg/L.
Executive summary:

The substance was tested for acute toxicity to aquatic invertebrates following OECD 202. Ten animals of Daphnia Magna were tested in duplicate for each concentration. Under the experimental conditions the EC50 > 100 mg/L.
