Conclusion on classification

Based on the available data, Bis(methylcyclohexyl) phthalate (CAS 27987-25-3) is considered to be rapidly degradable and has low potential for bioaccumulation. The substance is not acutely tharmful to aquatic organisms. Chronic toxicity data are available for invertebrates and algae – the lowest NOEC is 0.181 mg/L (thus in the rage of > 0.1 to < 1 mg/L) for aquatic invertebrates. Thus, the substance needs to be classified and labeled as environmental hazard Chronic Cat. 3 according to the Regulation (EC) No.1272/2008 (CLP).
