Additional information

Three short-term studies were available for the three standard aquatic organisms (fish, daphnia and algae). The substance did not show toxic effects to fish and aquatic invertebrates up to the highest concentration tested (100% of a SS) in the respective test medium.

Conclusion on classification

No toxicity of the substance in the range of its solubility has been recorded in any of the three acute studies. In all trophic levels no toxic effects occurred up to the limit of solubility in the respective test media. Therefore, the test substance can be considered as not toxic to aquatic organisms and not posing an aquatic toxicity hazard. Furthermore, the substance does not have a significant potential to bioaccumulate. Since the test substance showed no toxic effects within the range of solubility and is not bioaccumulative due to the log Kow of 3.9 no acute or chronic classification according to Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 is justified. Although the substance is considered as not very water-soluble and does not rapidly biodegrade, the "safety net" (Cat. chronic 4) also does not apply, as the log Kow is =<4 indicating a low potential for bioaccumulation. In conclusion, none of the criteria of Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 have been met. Therefore, it is proposed that the substance is not classified for environmental hazards.
