Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

A chronic earthworm reproduction test according to OECD 222 is available for Multi constituent ester of pentaerythritol 2-ethylhexanoate. Mortality, a decrease in body weight of the adult earthworms or inhibition of reproduction was not observed. Thus a NOEC ≥ 1000 mg/kg soil based on the reproduction rate was determined. The result shows that adverse effects of the test substance to terrestrial organisms are highly unlikely.

Therefore, in accordance with Regulation (EC) No. 1907/2006, Annex IX-X, Column 2, 9.4 further studies on the effects on terrestrial organisms does not have to be conducted since the chemical safety assessment indicates that there is no need.
