Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.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

NOEC (56 d) = 750 mg a.i./kg soil dw  for Eisenia fetida 

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Long-term EC10, LC10 or NOEC for soil macroorganisms:
750 mg/kg soil dw

Additional information

Since no studies on toxicity to soil organisms are available for AES (C12-18, 1-2.5EO) Na (CAS 68081-91-4) a read-across approach from a comparable AES (C12 -14, 2EO) Na (CAS 68891-38-3) was applied.

In this test individuals of Eisenia fetida were exposed to different test concentrations of AES (C12-14, 2EO) Na (CAS 68891-38-3). The study was performed according to OECD guideline 222 and GLP. The NOEC (56 d) for body weight change and reproduction was determined as 750 mg a.i./kg soil dry weight. Up to the highest test concentration (750 mg a.i./kg soil dry weight) no mortality was observed (BASF, 2012).
