Description of key information

No data are available for the long-term toxicity of dimethyl terephthalate to fish.  

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

This data point has been waived for dimethyl terephthalate on the grounds that exposure is not expected to occur and that DMT is readily biodegradable and therefore non-persistent. Under these circumstances, data for the long-term effects of dimethyl terephthalate on fish and the concomitant expenditure of vertebrate test organisms are considered unnecessary.
