Additional information

Conclusion on classification

For acute toxicity, data on invertebrates, fish and algae showed LC50 between 1,8 and 6 mg/L. No classification is then required for acute toxicity.

The long-term toxicity

There is no adequate chronic toxicity data available.

4 -phenoxyphenol is readily degradable and the Log Kow is 3.38 (there is no experimental BCF value).

On the basis of the CLP regulation (annex I, table 4.1.0 (b) iii), no classification is then required for chronic toxicity.
