Data about stearamide are not available. However as the substance Amides, C16-18 even numbered differs from the target only in composition (< 80% C18), read across data for this structural similar substance are considered reliable. A supporting study is available for (Z)-docos-13-enamide (CAS No. 112-84-5).

Both tests (Sewell, 2001 and Sewell, 2001)were performed according to the OECD Guideline No 202 under GLP conditions. No immobilisation or other negative effects were observed in any of the daphnids exposed to the test substances up to the highest attainable concentration tested. The substances are not harmful to aquatic invertebrates. It can be concluded that stearamide will show no toxicity in the range of water solubility.
