Additional information

PNEC aquatic is based on the lowest predicted EC50 value for individual components present in the "C7-C10 hydrocarbon" group, which is a daphnia EC50 of 0.22 mg/L (see aquatic toxicity endpoint summary for details). The terrestrial and soil PNECs have been derived from PNECaquatic using the equilibrium partitioning method. Applying a conservative approach, the lowest test concentration applied in a ready biodegradability for a constituent belonging to the C7-C10 constituent group that resulted in a ready biodegradation pass and/or no toxicity to the inoculum was used to derive PNEC STP.

Conclusion on classification

Not relevant for assessment entity. The conclusion for the classification of the whole substance is provided in the aquatic toxicity endpoint summary.
