Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.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

No reliable long-term toxicity data are available for the toxicity of Ethyl (S)-lactate to fish. However, a waiver is applied for this endpoint.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

Under column 2 of the Annex IX of Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006 the specific rules for adaptation from column 1 are that the long-term toxicity testing shall be proposed by the registrant if the chemical safety assessment according to Annex I indicates the need to investigate further the effects on fish. 

Testing is waived since no adverse effects of Ethyl (S)-lactate were observed in a short-term toxicity test with zebra fish (Danio rerio) at concentration up to 100 mg/L, i.e. the limit concentration for classification as aquatic toxic under CLP. Furthermore, ethyl lactate is readily biodegradable (see section 5.2.1) and as a consequence, no chronic exposure of fish is expected.

Therefore, and for reasons of animal welfare, a long-term toxicity study in fish was not provided.
