Description of key information

RCR freshwater < 1

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

In accordance with Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006, Column 2 of Annex IX, section 9.1.6 long-term toxicity on fish does not need to be investigated if the outcome of the chemical safety assessment shows no indication of risk on aquatic organisms from exposure to the substance in question. In a first step, the PNEC for the aquatic environment has been derived from a long-term test on Daphnia magna using appropriate assessment factor. The risk characterization ratio (RCR) has demonstrated that there is no indication of risk i.e. PEC/PNEC freshwater < 1 from current exposure conditions to this substance. In conclusion, in accordance to Regulation (EC) No. 1907/2006, Annex IX, Column 2, 9. 1, as the RCR freshwater is < 1 no further effects of Sodium methyl cocoyl taurate on aquatic organisms need to be investigated and a long-term test with fish is therefore not required.
