Description of key information

No studies on the chronic toxicity to inverterbrate are available. 

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

Propylene glycol phenyl ether is classified as readily biodegradable, therefore no long-term exposure to aquatic species is expected. The risk assessment shows that the PEC/PNEC ratio is clearly < 1 in surface water, indicating no need for further information or testing. According to REACH Annex IX requirements, long-term toxicity testing shall only be considered when the chemical safety assessment indicates the need for further investigations. Hence, long-term testing in aquatic species (inverterbrate) can be waived.
