Description of key information

According to Annex IX, 9.1.6 to the REACH Regulation long-term toxicity testing with fish shall be proposed only if the CSA indicates the need to investigate further the effects on aquatic organisms. However, as the CSA does not indicate the need for further testing of vertebrates and taking into consideration the low bioaccumulative potential, long-term toxicity testing with fish is waived.

For the calculation of the PNECaquatic it is considered unlikely that fish toxicity will be critical for this substance. Hence any additional toxicity testing with fish will not add scientific value to the ecotoxicity profile of the substance other than for obtaining a lower assessment factor. It is therefore concluded that for scientific reasons and in accordance to REACH legislation further testing on fish has to be avoided for reasons of animal welfare.
