Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

Description of key information

NOEC (21 d) = 1 mg/L on Daphnia magna (guideline proposal of the German Umweltbundesamt, 1984)

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

Long-term tests to aquatic invertebrates are only available for p-cresol. No data is available on o-cresol and m-cresol. Since there is no significant exposure of cresols to the aquatic compartment (refer to exposure assessment in CSR) long-term testing of o-cresol and m-cresol to aquatic invertebrates can be omitted (section 3 of REACH Annex XI).

The long-term toxicity of p-cresol to aquatic invertebrates was determined by a test according to the preliminary guideline proposal of the German Umweltbundesamt from1984. The 21d-NOEC was 1 mg/L for Daphnia magna (Kuehn et al. 1988, 1989). In a non-guideline study with 4 generations on the planarian Dugesia tigrina an 80-d EC10 of 2 mg/L was measured (Solki and Piontek 1987).
