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 long-term toxicity to fish.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

According to Regulation (EC) No. 1907/2006, Annex IX, Column 2, 9.1.6, long-term toxicity testing shall be proposed by the registrant if the chemical safety assessment according to Annex I indicates the need to investigate further the effects on aquatic organisms.

Soybean oil, epoxidized, reaction products with methanol (CAS 85586 -35 -2) is a readliy biodegradable and low water soluble substance.

Due to these characteristics, extensive biodegradation and adsorption to activated sludge within conventional STPs can be expected and therefore, only low concentrations are likely to be released into the water phase and directly bioavailable to fish species. Furthermore, the acute fish test show no toxic effects of the substance after 96 and 48 h respectively . Based on the results of the acute tests, fish species are not expected to show a higher sensitivity compared to aquatic invertebrates and therefore, considering this fact and all the above arguments, long-term toxicity testing on fish is not deemed necessary for the hazard assessment of Soybean oil, epoxidized, reaction products with methanol.
