Description of key information

The risk assessment shows that no risk for the environmental compartments exists (all RCR < 1). 

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

No simulation test investigating the biodegradation in water and sediment is available. In accordance with column 2 of annex IX 9.2 of RECh Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006 further degradation testing in water and sediment does not need to be conducted as the chemical safety assessment does not indicate a need for further investigations. The risk assessment for Glycerides, C8-18 and C18-unsatd. mono and di-, acetates shows that no risk for the environmental compartments exists (all RCR < 1). Thus, further tests are not necessary.
