Additional information

This data point has been waived for terephthalic acid on the grounds that exposure is not expected to occur and that TPA is readily biodegradable and therefore non-persistent. Under these circumstances, data for the long-term effects of terephthalic acid on fish and the concomitant expenditure of vertebrate test organisms are considered unnecessary.
