Environmental Risk Classification


Predicted Environmental Concentration (PEC)

PEC is calculated according to the following formula:


PEC (μg/L) = (A*109*(100-R))/(365*P*V*D*100) = 1.5*10-6*A(100-R)


PEC = 0.036 μg/L


Where:

A =239 kg (total sold amount API in Sweden year 2018, data from IQVIA (Ref. I)

R = 0 % removal rate (worst case assumption)

P = number of inhabitants in Sweden = 9 *106 

V (L/day) = volume of wastewater per capita and day = 200 (ECHA default) (Ref. II)

D = factor for dilution of waste water by surface water flow = 10 (ECHA default) (Ref. II)


Predicted No Effect Concentration (PNEC)


Ecotoxicological studies

Green Algae (Selenastrum capricornutum) (FDA 4.01) (Ref. III):

EC50 12 day (growth rate) > 0.026 mg/L

NOEC 12 day (growth rate) = 0.026 mg/L

No effects seen up to highest concentration tested


Crustacean, water flea (Daphnia magna) (FDA 4.08) (Ref. IV)

Acute toxicity

EC50 48 h (mortality) =1.1 mg/L


Chronic toxicity (OECD 211) (Ref. V)

NOEC 21 day (survival) = 0.16 mg/L


Fish, fathead minnow (Pimephales promelas) (OECD 210) (Ref. VI)


Chronic toxicity

NOEC 33 day (growth) = 0.07 mg/L


Fish, bluegill sunfish (Lepomis macrochirus) (FDA 4.11) (Ref. VII)

Acute toxicity

LC50 96 h (mortality) = 0.85 mg/L


PNEC = 2.6 µg/L (0.026 mg/L / 10) based on the chronic NOEC for the algae and an assessment factor (AF) of 10)


Environmental risk classification (PEC/PNEC ratio)

PEC/PNEC = 0.036/2.6 = 0.014, i.e. PEC/PNEC ≤ 0.1 which justifies the phrase "Use of efavirenz has been considered to result in insignificant environmental risk."


Degradation


Biotic degradation

Biodegradation Simulation Screening (FDA 3.11) (Ref. VIII)

Test results showed 12% biodegradation to CO2 by Day 28


Abiotic degradation


Photolysis (EPA 795.70) (Ref. IX)

Test results indicate 85% photo-degradation over 16 days


Justification of chosen degradation phrase:

Efavirenz is degradable in biological systems and via photolysis, however the criteria for classification as degradable was not met. The phrase “Efavirenz is potentially persistent” is thus chosen.


Bioaccumulation

Bioconcentration Factor (OECD 305). (Ref. X)

Measured BCF values were 439 for low concentration (0.9 µg/L) and 454 for high concentration (9 µg/L)


Justification of chosen bioaccumulation phrase:

Since measured BCF < 500, the substance has low potential for bioaccumulation.
