9.: ECOTOXICOLOGICAL INFORMATION


COLUMN 1

STANDARD INFORMATION REQUIRED

COLUMN 2

SPECIFIC RULES FOR ADAPTATION FROM COLUMN 1

9.1.  Aquatic toxicity

 

9.1.1.  Short-term toxicity testing on invertebrates (preferred species Daphnia)

The registrant may consider long-term toxicity testing instead of short-term.

9.1.1.  The study does not need to be conducted if:

— there are mitigating factors indicating that aquatic toxicity is unlikely to occur, for instance if the substance is highly insoluble in water or the substance is unlikely to cross biological membranes, or

— a long-term aquatic toxicity study on invertebrates is available, or

— adequate information for environmental classification and labelling is available.

The long-term aquatic toxicity study on Daphnia (Annex IX, section 9.1.5) shall be considered if the substance is poorly water soluble.

9.1.2.  Growth inhibition study aquatic plants (algae preferred)

9.1.2.  The study does not need to be conducted if there are mitigating factors indicating that aquatic toxicity is unlikely to occur for instance if the substance is highly insoluble in water or the substance is unlikely to cross biological membranes.

9.2.  Degradation

 

9.2.1.  Biotic

 

9.2.1.1.  Ready biodegradability

9.2.1.1.  The study does not need to be conducted if the substance is inorganic.

Any other relevant physicochemical, toxicological and ecotoxicological information that is available shall be provided.
