Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.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

There is no long-term toxicity to invertebrates data for DMEA. Nevertheless the registrants consider that a read-across approach with triethylamine (TEA - CAS 121 -44 -8) makes sense for addressing this endpoint. This assumption is supported by the similarity between the chemical structures. Based on the acute ecotoxicity package available for the 2 substances, it can be noticed that the ecotoxicity profiles are similar. Therefore available long-term toxicity to invertebrates data for TEA are used for DMEA as a read-across.
