Description of key information

The study of this end-point is waived. The short-term toxicity to fish test presented in the end-point 6.1.1 (short-term toxicity to fish) showed that FMMVF fibres have no adverse effects to fish. Furthermore, the substance is highly insoluble in water as presented in the end-point 4.8 (water solubility). Consequently, no adverse effect to fish is expected on long-term from the substance. Thus carrying out such a study is not scientifically justified.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

Justification of the waiving is that the short-term toxicity to fish test presented in the end-point 6.1.1 (short-term toxicity to fish) showed that FMMVF fibres have no adverse effects to fish. Furthermore, the substance is highly insoluble in water as presented in the end-point 4.8 (water solubility). Consequently, no adverse effect to fish is expected on long-term from the substance.
