Additional information

According to regulation (EC) No 1907/2006, Annex XI, paragraph 1.5., substances whose physicochemical, toxicological and ecotoxicological properties are likely to be similar or follow a regular pattern as a result of structural similarity may be considered as a group, or "category" of substances. Environmental effects or environmental fate may be predicted from data for reference substance(s) within the group by interpolation to other substances in the group (read-across approach). The available study hasbeen conducted on a structural analogue (EC 276-057-2). For the detailed read across justification please refer to the annex of the CSR

The toxicity study to aquatic algae and cyanobacteria on a structural analogue (EC 276 -057 -2) did not reveal any adverse effects on algal growth. It is therefore concluded that the present compound does not have adverse effects on algal growth, either.
