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 plants.

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 terrestrial plants 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). Furthermore, due to its high adsorption potential, the substance is not expected to be found in pore water, and uptake by plants is therefore unlikely. 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 forGlycerides, palm-oil mono-, hydrogenated, acetates (CAS No. 93572-32-8)showthat 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.
