Summary of publications
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 Significant New Activity (SNAc) provisions
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

Follow-up activities

While calcium 2-ethylhexanoate is not considered to be harmful to human health at levels of exposure considered in the assessment, it is considered to have a health effect of concern due to its potential developmental toxicity. Therefore, there may be a potential concern if exposures were to increase. The proposed follow-up activity for calcium 2-ethylhexanoate is to apply the SNAc provisions of the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999 (CEPA 1999).
