Description of key information

No data are necessary on the toxicity of hexyl salicylate to sediment dwelling organisms.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

In accordance with column 2 of REACH annex X, sediment testing does not need to be conducted as the chemical safety assessment does not indicate a need for further investigation. As hexyl salicylate is readily biodegradable, it can be assumed that it will be completely biologically degraded within the STP process. Therefore tests on sediment organisms are not provided.
