Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

Additional information

Conclusion on classification

Classification and labelling has been based upon the key information for the ecotoxicity endpoints. The results of these studies are as follows:

96 hour LOEC (fish): >5.70 mg/l (Hooftman and De Wolf, 2003)

48 hour EC50 (Daphnia): 1.4 mg/l (Goodband & Mullee, 2010)

72 hour EC50 (algae): 4.1 mg.l-1(Oldersma, Hanstveit & de Wolf, 2003)

It should also be considered that the substance does not meet the definition of a readily biodegradable substance (Hanstveit 2003).

The 48-hour EC50 (Daphnia) value presented by Goodband & Mullee, 2010, of 1.4 mg/l is suitable for use for classification and labelling and this meets the criteria under 67/548/EEC and EC Regulation 1272/2008 as follows:


R51 and R53: Toxic to aquatic organisms and May cause long-term adverse effects to the aquatic environment.

EC Regulation 1272/2008:

Hazardous to the aquatic environment, Chronic: Category 2; H411 Toxic to aquatic life with long lasting effects.

However, in line with the Summary Record of the Technical Committee on the Classification and Labelling of Dangerous Substances, Meeting on Environmental Effects of Existing Chemicals, Pesticides and New Chemicals, JRC Ispra – January 25 2007, the Final Conclusion reached by the ECB was that Dibutyltin di(acetate) should be classified as N, R50-53 and hence based on the Committee's decision we consider this the overriding classification for this substance.
