Description of key information

The toxicity to the aquatic environment of Phenol, ethoxylated (CAS 9004-78-8 / EC 500-013-6) was assessed based on the available information on its constituents.

2-phenoxyethanol and 2-(2-phenoxyethoxy)ethanol are not classified as toxic to aquatic invertebrates based on available experimental data.

Considering the structural similarities between the constituents of Phenol, ethoxylated, and in the absence of experimental data on the substance, 2-[2-(2-phenoxyethoxy)ethoxy]ethanol is not expected to be toxic to aquatic invertebrates following a short-term exposure.

It is concluded that Phenol, ethoxylated is not expected to be toxic to the aquatic environment.
