Additional information

Conclusion on classification

The following relevant key results are currently available for deriving the classification of the substance for the environment:

- Cyprinus carpio: 96h-LC50: 1.5 mg/L

- Daphnia magna: 48h-EC50: 19 mg/L

- Pseudokirchneriella subcapitata: 72h-ErC50: 6.9 mg/L; 72h-ErC10: 1.3 mg/L

- Readily biodegradable

- Log Kow: 3.8

Acute (short-term) aquatic hazard

As the acute E(L)C50 values are >1 mg/L, the substance does not need to be classified for this hazard category according to Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 on classification, labelling and packaging of substances and mixtures (CLP).

Chronic (long-term) aquatic hazard

One chronic value is available, for algae. As there are no chronic values available for fish and crustacea, the chronic classification has to be determined with the available chronic data for algae based on CLP Table 4.1.0 (b)(ii), as the substance is readily biodegradable, and with the available acute data for fish and daphnia magna based on CLP Table 4.1.0 (b) (iii). The most stringent classification is valid;

- CLP Table 4.1.0 (b)(ii): As the 72h-ErC10 is > 1 mg/L, the substance does not need to be classified based on this key result.

- CLP Table 4.1.0 (b)(iii): As the substance is readily biodegradable and has a log Kow below 4, the substance does not need to be classified based on these key results.

It is therefore concluded that based on the currently available data, the substance is not classified for this hazard according to CLP.
