|CAS RN||Common name||DSL name||Proposed Order and RIAS||Final screening assessment||Proposed risk management approach||Conclusion on section 64 criteria||Follow-up activities|
|136-51-6||Calcium 2-ethylhexanoate||Hexanoic acid, 2-ethyl-, calcium salt||N/A||HTML||N/A||Does not meet||SNAc|
|7425-14-1||2-Ethylhexyl-2-ethylhexanoate||Hexanoic acid, 2-ethyl-, 2-ethylhexyl ester||HTML||HTML||Meets one or more of the criteria||Refer to proposed risk management approach|
While exposure of the general population to calcium 2-ethylhexanoate is not of concern at current levels, this substance is considered to have a health effect of concern due to its potential developmental toxicity. Therefore, there may be a concern for human health if exposures were to increase. The proposed follow-up activity for calcium 2-ethylhexanoate is to apply the Significant New Activity (SNAc) provisions of the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999 (CEPA 1999).
