Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

Description of key information

In accordance to Annex X Column 2, long-term toxicity testing shall be proposed by the registrant if the results of the chemical safety assessment indicates the need to investigate further the effects of the substance and/or relevant degradation products on sediment organisms.
Because of low potential for adsorption (i.e. they have low octanol water partition coefficients: log Kow ≤ 3 and are water soluble), no exposure of the sediment is expected for Tartaric acid and its salts.
Tartaric acid and its salts are assessed as (i) ready biodegradable, (ii) non-bioaccumulable (due to their high polarity, as shown by Log Kow values close to 0) and (iii) non-toxic to the environment or human health.

The registrant is not proposing to present data for this endpoint.
