Additional information

In Annex IX REACH, it is laid down that long-term toxicity testing in aquatic invertebrates shall be proposed by the registrant if the CSA indicates the need to investigate further the effects on aquatic invertebrates. According to Annex I of REACH, the CSA triggers further action when the substance fulfils the criteria for any of most hazard classes or categories set out in Annex I to Regulation (EC) No. 1272/2008 (for details see REACH Annex I section 0.6.3.) or is assessed to be a PBT or vPvB. The hazard assessment reveals neither a need to classify the substance as dangerous to the environment, nor is it a PBT or vPvB substance, nor are there any further indications that the substance may be hazardous to the environment. Therefore, a long-term toxicity testing in aquatic invertebrates is not required.
