Conclusion on classification

The substance is classified as hazardous to the aquatic environment as Chronic Category 1 (H410: Very toxic to aquatic life with long lasting effects.).

The classification is based on acute toxicity testing in fish, invertebrates and algae, in both marine water and freshwater (freshwater results read-across from Tall oil diethylenetriamine imidazoline).

The 'mean' results and worst case study results for each species are given below:

Marine Fish:

Worst case 96 hr LC50: 1.37 mg/l

Freshwater Fish:

96 hr LC50: 0.19 mg/l

Marine Invertebrates:

Mean 48 hr LC50: 1.11 mg/l

Worst case 48 hr LC50: 0.72 mg/l

Freshwater Invertebrate:

48 hr LC50: 0.18 mg/l

Marine algae:

Mean 72 hr EC50 (growth rate): 0.15 mg/l

Worst case 72 hr EC50 (growth rate): 0.08 mg/l

Freshwater algae:

72 hr EC50 (growth rate): 0.5 mg/l.

The use of marine data is considered appropriate for the evaluation of classification, as the main release of the substance will be to the sea, rather than to freshwater.

The most sensitive marine species was determined to be algae.

The results above show that the substance classification of Chronic Category 1 is applicable, as the 'mean' marine result for algae is <1 mg/l, the worst case marine invertebrate result is <1 mg/l and all read-across freshwater data is <1 mg/l.

As the substance cannot be considered readily biodegradable then all criteria for classification as Chronic Category 1 are met.
