Description of key information

Short-term toxicity to aquatic invertebrates: EC0 (48h) = 27 mg/l, EC50 (48h) = 84.2 mg/l

Toxicity to aquatic plants other than algae: EC50 (7d) > 200 mg/l for growth rate of both frond number and biomass

Additional information

Justification for classification or non-classification

According to the CLP Regulation (EC 1272/2008), a substance shall be classified as category acute 1 (H400) when:

96 hr LC50 (for fish) < 1 mg/l and/or

48 hr EC50 (for crustacea) < 1 mg/l and/or

72 or 96 hr ErC (for algae or other aquatic plants) < 1 mg/l.

 

Moreover, if adequate chronic toxicity data is not available, a substance shall be classified as category chronic 3 (H412) when:

96 hr LC50 (for fish): 10 - 100 mg/l and/or

48 hr EC50 (for crustacea): 10 - 100 mg/l and/or

72 or 96 hr ErC (for algae or other aquatic plants): 10 - 100 mg/l

and the substance is not rapidly degradable and/or the experimentally determined BCF ≥ 500 (or, if absent, the log Kow ≥ 4).

Based on available data, classification in category chronic 3 (H412) was applied.
