Description of key information

The chemical safety assessment according to Annex I of Regulation (EC) No. 1907/2006 does not indicate the need to investigate further the toxicity to terrestrial arthropods.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

No studies investigating the toxicity of Glycerides, palm-oil mono-, hydrogenated, acetates (CAS No. 93572-32-8) to arthropods are available.


Should the substance be exposed to soil, it is expected to be rapidly degraded in this compartment, due to its ready biodegradability (86.7% biodegradation after 28 days).The toxicity test conducted on algae (Pseudokirchneriella subcapitata) resulted in a NOEC value < 1 mg/L. According to the Guidance on information requirements and chemical safety assessment, Chapter R7.c (ECHA, 2008), where aquatic data are sufficient to derive a PNEC aquatic value, this PNEC can be used in a screening assessment for soil risks through the use of the Equilibrium Partitioning Method (EPM) approach. The results from the environmental exposure assessment conducted in this way for Glycerides, palm-oil mono-, hydrogenated, acetates (CAS No. 93572-32-8) show that the Risk Characterization Ratio (i.e. PEC/PNEC ratio) in the terrestrial compartment is < 1 and therefore, under the current exposure conditions, Glycerides, palm-oil mono-, hydrogenated, acetates does not pose a risk to soil organisms and further testing is not deemed necessary according to Regulation (EC) No. 1907/2006, Annex XI, section 3.
