Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

Toxicity to fish has been investigated with a structurally similar trimellitate, tri(2 -ethylhexyl)trimellitate (TOTM), in a 14 day test according to OECD Test Guideline No. 204. It is recognised that the duration of the OECD TG 204 test is shorter than that currently accepted for investigating long-term toxicity in fish. Additional testing is not proposed based both on the lack of effects seen in the 14 -day fish study and chronic Daphnia reproduction studies together with considerations regarding adequate justification for the use of vertebrate species for experimental purposes.
