Abstract: This 'Letter to the Editor' is the reaction to the paper "Mode of action and aquatic exposure thresholds of no concern" by de Wolf et al. published in Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry. The paper refers to a personal communication concerning an analysis of the EU New Chemicals Database: "Sokull-Kluettgen and Vollmer reported that based on their analysis, which did not make a distinction between MODs, no evidence suggests that an ETNCaqMOD1-3 of 0.1 µg/L is an unacceptable value". This is in contrast to the reaction of the European Chemicals Bureau (ECB) on the approach in the discussion with some of the authors back in 2003. This letter presents the ECB data analysis, which was available to the authors of the paper, to avoid misinterpretation. It does not comment in detail on the suggest approach of an aquatic exposure threshold of no concern.
