Ecotoxicology considers the responses of organisms to chemicals that are applied in the environment. The effects of a biocidal active substance or product on non-target organisms are important criteria for evaluation during the regulatory process.
Predicted concentrations of a substance in the environment are compared with the effects on organisms, in order to be able to determine a safe use.
The ecotoxicological relevance of a biocidal active substance is investigated through various studies: from acute aquatic toxicity at different trophic levels, and exposure-related tests (for example with terrestrial organisms), though to chronic toxicity.
