Description of key information

NOEC (28 d and 56 d) = 1000 mg/kg dw for Eisenia fetida (OECD 222)

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

The toxicity of methyl laurate (CAS No. 111-82-0) to earthworms was evaluated by Winkelmann (2013) in a test according to OECD 222, under GLP conditions. Eisenia fetida was exposed to the test substance for 56 days at a concentration of 1000 mg/kg dw (limit test). Mortality and growth were evaluated after 28 days whereas reproduction was evaluated after 56 days. After the exposure period, no effects on earthworm’s survival, reproduction or growth were observed, leading to a NOEC = 1000 mg/kg dw.
