Description of key information

Long-term studies on invertebrates are not available. A long-term test is not required as no unacceptable effects has been detected in the risk assessment (risk characterization ratios <1).

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

According to column 2 in Annex IX of Regulation (EC) 1907/2006, long-term toxicity tests with aquatic organisms are not needed if the outcome of the chemical safety assessment indicates no unacceptable effects on aquatic organisms. In a first step, the PNEC for the aquatic environment is derived on short-term toxicity.

The risk for the aquatic compartment being exposed to N-butyl-2,2,6,6-tetramethylpiperidin-4-amine (N-butyl TAD) is acceptable as the risk characterization ratios are below 1. Therefore, further tests are not required.
