Canada | The Final Screening Assessment for the Fatty Acids and Derivatives Group was published



Considering all available lines of evidence presented in this screening assessment, there is low risk of harm to the environment from undecylenic acid; ALA; tung oil; tall oil fatty acid; tall oil fatty acids, potassium salts; evening primrose oil; dimer acid; trimer acid and ethylhexyl cocoate. It is concluded that undecylenic acid; ALA; tung oil; tall oil fatty acid; tall oil fatty acids, potassium salts; evening primrose oil; dimer acid; trimer acid; and ethylhexyl cocoate do not meet the criteria under paragraphs 64(a) or (b) of CEPA as they are not entering the environment in a quantity or concentration or under conditions that have or may have an immediate or long-term harmful effect on the environment or its biological diversity or that constitute or may constitute a danger to the environment on which life depends.

On the basis of the information presented in this screening assessment, it is concluded that undecylenic acid; ALA; tung oil; tall oil fatty acid; tall oil fatty acids, potassium salts; evening primrose oil; dimer acid; trimer acid; and ethylhexyl cocoate do not meet the criteria under paragraph 64(c) of CEPA as they are not entering the environment in a quantity or concentration or under conditions that constitute or may constitute a danger in Canada to human life or health.

Therefore, it is concluded that undecylenic acid; ALA; tung oil; tall oil fatty acid; tall oil fatty acids, potassium salts; evening primrose oil; dimer acid; trimer acid; and ethylhexyl cocoate do not meet any of the criteria set out in section 64 of CEPA.
