Note1: Classification under Directive 67/548/EEC;
N; Dangerous for the environment
R50/53: Very toxic to aquatic organisms, may cause long-term adverse effects in the aquatic environment.
R51/53: Toxic to aquatic organisms, may cause long-term adverse effects in the aquatic environment
R52/53: Harmful to aquatic organisms, may cause long-term adverse effects in the aquatic environment
R50: Very toxic to aquatic organisms

Note 2: Chromium compounds risk assessed under ESR and for which a risk reduction strategy was developed are:
chromium trioxide (CAS 1333-82-0)
sodium chromate (CAS 7775-11-3)
sodium dichromate (CAS 10588-01-9)
ammonium dichromate (CAS 7789-09-5)
potassium dichromate (CAS 7778-50-9)

Note 3: It was concluded that for man via the environment there was a need for limiting the risks.

Note 4: For the environment it was concluded that: There is at present no need for further information and/or testing and for risk reduction measures beyond those which are being applied already.

Note 5: For the environment it was concluded that there was need for further information and/or testing for aquatic life, but for all other environmental compartments there was no need for further information and/or testing and for risk reduction measures beyond those which are being applied already.

Note 6: For the environment it was concluded that for the atmospheric compartment was a need for limiting the risks.

Note 7: It was concluded that for certain uses for the aquatic and terrestrial compartments there was a need for limiting the risks.
