Description of key information

For evaluation of chronic effects in aquatic organisms due to exposure to maleic anhydride and its product of hydrolysis maleic acid a reproduction study on Daphnia magna is available. Furthermore, maleic anhydride and its product of hydrolysis reveal a low hazard potential to fish. Therefore and for reasons of animal welfare a long-term toxicity study in fish is not indicated.

Key value for chemical safety assessment
