Description of key information

Considering that:

- the Aliphatic Acids category members possess properties indicating a hazard for the environment (acute toxicity to aquatic organisms between 1-100 mg/L for C6, and C12-18 sodium salts). Aliphatic Acids category members are readily biodegradable and are not expected to bioaccumulate

- daphnia magna 48h EC50 (mg/L) range from 0.8 - 6 mg/L

- Pseudokirchneriella s. 72h EC50 (mg/L) range from 1 - 2.5 mg/L

Aliphatic Acids category members are readily biodegradable and are not expected to bioaccumulate.

The substance deemed to be non-toxic.

Additional information

According to Regulation (EC) n. 1272/2008, the study results indicate that the substance should not be classified for aquatic toxicity because data are judged as "inconclusive".
