Additional information

12- hydoxystearic acid demonstrates low toxicity to all terrestrial and aquaticspecies tested. Once taken up into the organisms, it undergoes β-oxidation and is used as a source of energy (Oxley, 2005 and 2006).

The weight of evidence suggest that toxicity to the terrestrial environment is not likely, therefore further testing for this endpoint was not conducted, in accordance with Annex IX, Section 9, Column 2 of the REACH regulation.
