GHS

General Information

Name:
Benzoic acid, 2-ethoxy-4-methyl-, ethyl ester
Implementation:
EU
Type of classification:
self-classification
Remarks:

This substance is currently listed on the substances list published by ECHA of those who has met REACH Annex III criteria.

The Annex III inventory is an advisory list, there are not detailed information about the used model and the predictions do not follow OECD principles.

Therefore, the following data can only be used as screening information, but they are not to be considered relevant for the classification and labelling:

# Suspected hazardous to the aquatic environment: Fathead Minnow toxicity model (EPA) in VEGA (Q)SAR platform predicts that the chemical has a 96h LC50 of 7.62 mg/L (moderate reliability); Fish toxicity classification (SarPy/IRFMN) model in VEGA (Q)SAR platform predicts that the chemical is Toxic-2 (between 1 and 10 mg/l) (good reliability);The Danish QSAR database contains information indicating that the substance has a 96h LC50 to fish of 4.02 mg/L; The Danish QSAR database contains information indicating that the substance has a 48h EC50 to Daphnia of 5.66 mg/L; The Danish QSAR database contains information indicating that the substance has a 96h EC50 to green algae of 2.43 mg/L

# Suspected persistent in the environment: The Danish QSAR database contains information indicating that the substance is predicted as non readily biodegradable

# Suspected toxic for reproduction: The Toolbox profiler DART scheme v.1.0 gives an alert for toxicity to reproduction
