Conclusion on classification

Self-classification according to Commission Regulation (EU) No.286/2011 of March 2011 amending, for the purpose of its adaptation to technical and scientific progress, Regulation (EC) 1272/2008

Aquatic environment classification:

a. According to GHS

hydroxycitronellol is not to be classified according to the criteria laid down in the regulation:

-hydroxycitronellol proved to be readily biodegradable,

- E(L)C50>1 mg/L: the lowest acute EC/LC50 value in aquatic tests was found to be >100 mg/L nominal (Daphnia magna and Desmodesmus subspicatus)

-log Pow <4


Signal word: not necessary

Pictogramm for environmental hazards: not necessary

Self-classification according to 67/548/EEC, Annex 1:

Aquatic environment classification:

b.According to 67/548/EEC Annex 1: substance is not to be classified

Lowest reliable L(EC)50 value:                 >100 mg test item/L (algae, daphnia)

Ready biodegradable                                yes

log Pow                                                     < 3

Special concern:                                       no

Reason for classification:  

Due to its ready biodegradability, log Pow and acute aquatic toxicity, the substance is not to be classified as dangerous/hazardous for the environment according to Directive 67/548/EEC and according to theRegulation (EC) 1272/2008 on classification, labelling and packaging of substances and mixtures (CLP Regulation):


Hazardous to the atmospheric environment:

(Hazardous to the ozone layer: This includes substances which are listed in Annex I to Regulation (EC) No 2037/2000 of the European Parliament and of the Council of substances that deplete the ozone layer (1) and its subsequent amendments):
Hydroxycitronellol is not listed in Annex I of (EC) No. 2037/2000.


M-Factor:                                       No

Labelling:                                        No Signal word and Pictogram for environmental hazards
