Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

In Annex IX of Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006, it is laid down that long-term toxicity testing shall be proposed by the registrant if the chemical safety assessment indicates the need to investigate further the effects on aquatic organisms.  According to Annex I of this regulation, the chemical safety assessment triggers further action when the substance or the preparation meets the criteria for classification as dangerous according to Directive 67/548/EEC or Directive 1999/45/EC or is assessed to be a PBT or vPvB.  The hazard assessment of the test substance reveals neither a need to classify the substance as dangerous for the environment, nor is it a PBT or vPvB substance. The short-term toxicity tests indicate that the substance is not harmful to aquatic organisms. In addition, the ready biodegradability and low log Pow and log Koc values do not indicate a risk of chronic exposure or bioaccumulation in aquatic organisms. Therefore, a long-term toxicity study with aquatic invertebrates is not provided.
