The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

Additional information

Geranylacetate has been identified as a class 3 type compound (Vinyl/Allyl Ketone) according to Verhaar (1992). Thus the mode of action is assumed as unspecific reactive. For these MoA class an a/c-ratio (90-percentile) of 31.7 is reported by ECETOC (Technical report No. 91). Taking this into account it can be concluded, that - considering an a/c-ratio <100 - it is unlikely that a long-term fish study would decrease the PNEC (relative to the PNEC from acute studies with an AF of 1000) and thus not significantly change the risk assessment. Furthermore the substance is readily biodegradable. In conclusion, a long-term fish study therefore is deemed not to be necessary.
