Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

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.

Description of key information

No long-term toxicity test with aquatic invertebrates is available, but no long-term effects can be expected.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

There is no long-term test on aquatic invertebrates available for Fatty acids, C18-unsaturated, dimers, hydrogenated (CAS No. 68783-41-5). However, one study investigating the chronic toxicity to fish is available. A NOEC of ≥ 0.85 mg/L (mean measured) was determined. As the water solubility of the test substance was determined to be < 0.52 mg/L, no effects within the water solubility of Fatty acids, C18-unsaturated, dimers, hydrogenated (CAS No. 68783-41-5) were observed.

As there was no sign that aquatic invertebrates are more sensitive than fish in the short term tests, it cannot be expected that a long-term test with aquatic invertebrates will generate different results than the existing long-term test with fish.

Thus, a long-term study on aquatic invertebrates is not required.
