EC50(48h) = 55 mg/l

Toxicity to aquatic algae and cyanobacteria

ECr50(96h) = 31.8 mg/l

Additional information

Justification for classification or non-classification

According to the CLP Regulation (EC n. 1272/2008), Part 4: Environmental Hazards, the substances can be classified for hazardous to the aquatic environment (fish toxicity) when the following criteria are met:

B) Long-term aquatic hazard

(iii) Substances for which adequate chronic toxicity data are not available

Category Chronic 3:

96 hr LC 50 (for fish) > 10 to ≤ 100 mg/l and/or 48 hr EC 50 (for crustacea) > 10 to ≤ 100 mg/l and/or 72 or 96 hr ErC 50 (for algae or other aquatic plants) > 10 to ≤ 100 mg/l

and the substance is not rapidly degradable and/or the experimentally determined BCF ≥ 500 (or, if absent, the log Kow ≥ 4).

Based on the above results the susbtance has been classified as Category Chronic 3.
