Conclusion on classification

Short-term aquatic toxicity data are available for two trophic levels (aquatic invertebrates and aquatic algae). The acute effect values for daphnids and algae (P. subcapitata) are 8.5 mg/L and 7.7 mg/L, respectively. The substance does not need to be classified for acute aquatic hazard. Long-term aquatic toxicity data are available only for aquatic algae for which a ErC10 of 1.6 mg/L was determined. As only one reliable long-term toxicity endpoint is available, chronic classification needs to be based on both acute and chronic data and the worst case classification applied. The substance is readily biodegradable, has a log Kow of 3.2 (no experimental BCF is available) and a lowest acute effect value in the range of 1 - 10 mg/L based on which no chronic classification is required. Based on its ready biodegradability and the chronic effect value of >1 mg/L also no chronic classification is required. Therefore, the substance is not classified for the environment according to Regulation 1272/2008/EC (CLP).
