Description of key information

The results of the environmental exposure assessment do not indicate the need to investigate further the toxicity to sediment organisms.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

No data evaluating the toxicity of methyl laurate (CAS No. 111-82-0) to sediment organisms 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 sediment compartment (freshwater and marine) are < 1 and therefore, under the current exposure conditions, methyl laurate does not pose a risk to sediment organisms and further testing is not deemed necessary according to Regulation (EC) No. 1907/2006, Annex XI, section 3.
