No reliable long-term toxicity data are available for the toxicity of ethyl-(S)-lactate to aquatic invertebrates. However, a waiver is applied for this endpoint.
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 aquatic invertebrates.
Testing is waived since no adverse effects of ethyl-(S)-lactate
were observed in a short-term toxicity test with the freshwater
crustacean Daphnia magna at concentration up to 100 mg/L, the
limit concentration. Further, ethyl-(S)-lactate is readily biodegradable
(see section 5.2.1) and as a consequence, no chronic exposure of aquatic
invertebrates is expected.
Therefore, and for reasons of animal welfare, a long-term toxicity
study in aquatic invertebrates is not provided.
