Description of key information

Further testing on terrestrial toxicity is not justified.

Additional information

Few short- and long-term studies were performed with soil macro-organisms and plants. However, no key study has been identified.

In accordance with column 2 of REACH Annex IX and X, studies on terrestrial toxicity do not need to be conducted as the substance has a low potential for adsorption (log Kow = 2.53). No significant concentrations are expected in the soil compartment. This is supported by exposure assessment carried out using CHESAR, indicating low exposure to the terrestrial compartment.

The PNEC soil was derived by equilibrium partitioning method. All the relevant RCRs derived from exposure assessment are well below 1, therefore the available information can be considered sufficient.

In conclusion further testing on terrestrial toxicity is not justified.
