Description of key information

The chemical safety assessment according to Annex I of Regulation (EC) No. 1907/2006 does not indicate the need to investigate further the long-term toxicity to fish.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

No data evaluating the chronic toxicity of methyl laurate (CAS No. 111-82-0) to fish species are available. The environmental exposure assessment performed for this substance (see Chapters 9 and 10 of the CSR for detailed information) shows that the Risk Characterization Ratios (i.e. PEC/PNEC ratio) in the aquatic compartment (freshwater and marine) are < 1 and therefore, under the current exposure conditions, methyl laurate does not pose a risk to aquatic organisms and further testing is not deemed necessary according to Regulation (EC) No. 1907/2006, Annex XI, section 3.
