Toxicity to soil macroorganisms except arthropods

Administrative data

toxicity to soil macroorganisms except arthropods: long-term
Type of information:
experimental study planned (based on read-across)
Study period:
After approval by ECHA
Justification for type of information:
The soil hazard category 3 (ECHA 2017, guidance part R7(c) Table R.7.11—2) has been derived for the substance based on the expected persistence of the silanol hydrolysis product, methylsilanetriol. In accordance with the screening assessment for soil hazard category 3 substances, a PNECsoil has been calculated from the aquatic data on the basis of the equilibrium partitioning method. The PNEC calculated by Equilibrium Partitioning has been derived for the purpose of chemical safety assessment and the risk characterisation ratios are below 1. In addition, a confirmatory long-term soil toxicity test should be conducted. A chronic earthworm reproduction test with methylsilanetriol is proposed to fulfil the testing requirements for soil hazard category 3.
