Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.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

Justification for read across:

There are no specific experimental data available for MK1 diesel fuel. Compositional and physico-chemical data show that MK1 Diesel Fuel is very similar to Kerosine. It is considered appropriate, therefore, to read across from the Kerosine data to MK1 Diesel Fuel. In that respect, the conclusions on the ecological toxicity endpoints for MK1 Diesel Fuel will be the same for those of Kerosine.  Further discussion on ecological toxicity will concern Kerosine, and data endpoints that are waived for Kerosine will be waived for MK1 Diesel Fuel.

Long-term toxicity to aquatic invertebrates has been filled by read-across of measured data from kerosine. It is supported in a weight of evidence approach by a calculated value using composition information derived from two dimensional gas chromatography in conjunction with the PETROTOX model.

In a 21-day semi-static read-across chronic reproductive toxicity test (OECD 211; KS=1) on Daphnia magna, hydrodesulfurised kerosine was evaluated using water accommodated fraction methodology.The actual loading rates were 0 (control), 0.08, 0.19, 0.48, 1.2, and 3.0 mg/L.Under the conditions of this test, the 21-day chronic reproductive NOEL for Kerosine is 0.48 mg/L. The LOEL is 1.2 mg/L. The EL50 based on reproduction is 0.89 mg/L (ExxonMobil, 2010).

Based on PETROTOX data, the estimated freshwater invertebrate NOEL value is 0.42 mg/l based on immobility and numbers of live young produced per adult by Day 21 (Redman et al., 2010b).
