Additional information

The PNEC for waste-water treatment is 32 mg/L based on the NOEC of 320 mg/L obtained in the activated sludge respiration inhibition test and an assessment factor of 10.

No long-term studies on aquatic organisms are available and thus PNECs for aqueous environment were derived by the assessment method based on acute aquatic toxicity data. PNECs for sediment and soil were derived therefrom by applying the partitioning method.

The substance has a low potential for bioaccumulation and this hazards for predators via the food chain are not anticipated.

Conclusion on classification

The substance was tested for three trophic levels in the aquatic environment using acute test design and the most sensitive species was zebra fish showing an 96-hr LC50 0.52 mg/L (0.33 mg/L a.i.). As the substance is considered non-biodegradable, this substance will be classified as a Category 1 for both acute and chronic aquatic toxicity hazards for CLP and R50/53 for DSD (Regulation EC No. 1272/2008 and Directive 67/548/EEC).
