Description of key information

There were no long-term toxicity to fish studies available for ethyl 3-ethoxypropanoate.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

Ethyl-3-ethoxypropanoate is classified as readily biodegradable with a low potential for bioaccumulation (log Kow = 1.35). Additionally, the risk assessment shows that the PEC/PNEC ratio is clearly < 1 in surface water, indicating no need for further information or testing. According to REACH Annex IX requirements, long-term toxicity testing shall only be considered when the chemical safety assessment indicates the need for further investigations. Hence, long-term testing in fish can be waived for ethyl -3-ethoxypropanoate.
