Description of key information

The inhibition of the degradation activity of activated sludge is not anticipated when introduced in appropriate low concentrations. 

Key value for chemical safety assessment

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 microorganisms on a structural analogue (EC 276 -057 -2) did not reveal any toxicity in the range of water solubility. It is therefore concluded that for the present compound the inhibition of the degradation activity of activated sludge is not anticipated when introduced in appropriate low concentrations.
