Justification for data waiving:

Description of key information

Due to the known inherent physico-chemical properties, the absence of acute toxic effects as well as the ubiquitous presence of silica/silicates in the environment, there is no indication for harmful long-term effects arising from exposure to SAS. The need for further testing has been waived on the basis of REACH Regulation 1907/2006, Annex IX, 9.1 because the chemical safety assessment according to Annex I indicates no need to investigate the long-term effects on fish.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

No chronic aquatic toxicity - including the marine environment - expected from exposure to synthetic amorphous silica (SAS). See Waiver based on REACH Regulation 1907/2006, Annexes IX, 9.1.
