Abstract: The report provides the comprehensive risk assessment of the substance 2-ethoxyethyl acetate. It has been prepared by Germany in the frame of Council Regulation (EEC) No. 793/93 on the evaluation and control of the risks of existing substances, following the principles for assessment of the risks to man and the environment, laid down in Commission Regulation (EC) No. 1488/94. The human health risk assessment has not been performed because production, import and use of the substance in the EU ceased entirely by 2002. The environmental risk assessment was however performed at a much earlier stage, and in order not to loose the results of this assessment, the current risk assessment report covering the environmental part is published. The evaluation considers the emissions and the resulting exposure to the environment in all life cycle steps. Following the exposure assessment, the environmental risk characterisation for each protection goal in the aquatic, terrestrial and atmospheric compartment has been determined. The risk assessment concludes that there are no risks for the environment identified based on the former production and use pattern.
