Additional information

Conclusion on classification

Classification justification according to CLP:

Based on the ecotoxicological data, amides, C16-C18 (even numbered) does not pose a risk to organisms in regard to bioaccumulation, the substance is readily biodegradable. Short term toxicity data of the substance towards fish, daphnia and algae give a NOEC greater than the water solubility of amides, C16-C18 (even numbered). No toxicity could be observed in any test. Additionally, long term test with the structural related erucamide are conducted. The available study report on long-term toxicity of erucamide to fish conducted according to OECD 215 demonstrate no effect up to the limit of the water solubility of the tested substance. The same applies for a long term daphnia study according to OECD 202 for erucamide, detecting no effects up to the limit of the water solubility of the tested substance. Therefore, no classification is required for amides, C16-C18 (even numbered) according to the Regulation (EC) No.1272/2008 (CLP) and the Regulation (EU) No. 286/2011 (2nd ATP).

 

Classification justification according to DSD:

Based on the ecotoxicological data

, amides, C16-C18 (even numbered) does not pose a risk to organisms in regard to bioaccumulation, the substance is readily biodegradable. Short term toxicity data of the substance towards fish, daphnia and algae give a NOEC greater than the water solubility of amides, C16-C18 (even numbered). No toxicity could be observed in any test. Additionally, long term test with the structural related erucamide are conducted. The available study report on long-term toxicity of erucamide to fish conducted according to OECD 215 demonstrate no effect up to the limit of the water solubility of the tested substance. The same applies for a long term daphnia study according to OECD 202 for erucamide, detecting no effects up to the limit of the water solubility of the tested substance.

Therefore, no classification is required for amides, C16-C18 (even numbered) according to or the Directive 67/548/EEC.
