According to the basis for the effect choosen, for Selenastrum capricornutum the EC50 (72 h) value ranges between 0,49 and 0,87 mg/l; the NOEC ranges between 0,088 and 0,7 mg/l.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

The reliability of the studies was judged as not assignable (score 4) because of the lack of study details. This would represent an obstacle to use the studies results for the classification and labelling (C&L) of the substance. However, the studies were previously presented within the context of a regulatory framework and the lack of details available to us does not necessarily mean that they have to be discarded.

Therefore, even with the above mentioned limitations, the studies were considered in order to define the C&L of the substance.

In absence of criteria for choosing the most reliable study for C&L, in case of conflicting results the study providing data of higher concern was used to provisionally define the C&L of the substance.
