Conclusion on classification

In order to determine the classification for hazardous properties related to the aquatic environment, the criteria of the Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 (CLP) version 2016 in Annex I were accurately followed.

Short-term (acute) aquatic hazard:

For classification, acute toxicity data is available for two trophic levels, which are Daphnia and algae:

- Daphnia: EC50 (48h) > 4.31 mg/L

- Algae: EC50, EC10 (72h, growth rate) > 3.45 mg/L

The criteria in Table 4.1.0 (a) of Annex I of the CLP Regulation were applied. According to Table 4.1.0 (a), the substance should not be classified for acute aquatic toxicity as the EC50 value for algae is above the cut-off threshold value.

Long-term (chronic) aquatic hazard:

For chronic classification, there is only chronic data available for one trophic level, algae. As described in Figure 4.1.1 in the CLP regulation (EC No 1272/2008, version 2016), the most stringent outcome of classification according to Table 4.1.0 (b) (i) or (ii) and (iii) should be used.

Table 4.1.0 (b) (i):

The substance is considered to be not readily biodegradable, hence Table 4.1.0 (b) (i) applies, and not Table 4.1.0 (b) (ii).

The chronic EC10 (72h, growth rate) for algae is > 3.45 mg/L, which is above the cut-off values for classification as aquatic chronic category 1 or 2. Therefore, based on this scheme the substance should not be classified for chronic aquatic toxicity.

Table 4.1.0 (b) (iii):

Classification based on available acute data available for 2 trophic levels and environmental fate data:

- Daphnia: EC50 (48h) > 4.31 mg/L

- Algae: EC50 (72h, growth rate) > 3.45 mg/L

Based on the criteria Table 4.1.0 (b) (iii), the substance should be classified for chronic aquatic toxicity category 2 since the EC50 value for the most sensitive species (algae) is found in between the range > 1 to < 10 mg/L and the substance is not readily biodegradable.

Most stringent classification:

The conclusion is that the substance should be classified for chronic aquatic hazard, category 2 based on the available long-term toxicity information for algae.
