Description of key information

No data are required for the long-term toxicity of hexyl salicylate to fish.  

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

Long-term fish toxicity testing as described in Annex IX is not considered to be necessary as the chemical safety assessment demonstrates safe use of the material. In addition hexyl salicylate is readily biodegradable, with rapid mineralisation to CO2 occurring in aerobic aquatic systems.
