Description of key information

Two studies are presented, but the results are not robust. They invalidated the studies. Due to the extremely low water solubility, it can be argued that reaction mass of stearoylbenzoylmethane and palmitoylbenzoylmethane will not be bioavailable to aquatic organisms. Furthermore, the test item is considered as readily biodegradable. Due to these parameters and in accordance with the REACh principle intended to limit vertebrate testing, the short term assay on fish is not needed.
