Hazard 4 P 3 B 0 T 1 Risk Insignificant

The T-value in the score for hazard refers to acute toxicity. Underlying data for P, B, T and risk comes from Fass.se.

Fass environmental information

Fass environmental information for formoterol from Bevespi Aerosphere (formoterol, glycopyrronium bromide) (downloaded 2019-12-13).


Persistence: "Percentage DOC Removal 28 days 20.5%. The phrase Formoterol fumarate dihydrate is potentially persistent” is chosen."

Bioaccumulation: Log D = 0.41 at pH 7.4.

Acute toxicity: There are data for 3 trophic levels, lowest for algae (Pseudokirchneriella subcapitata) 94 000 microg/L.


PEC/PNEC is based on sales data in Sweden in year 2017. PEC/PNEC = 0.0000016 which gives the risk insignificant.
