Additional information

2 -Ethylhexylamine is not supposed to be directly applied to soil. Further, the test substance is readily biodegradable and it does not have the potential to bioaccumulate nor is it considered as a PBT/vPvB substance. Hence, in case of indirect exposure of soil, 2 -ethylhexylamine is expected to rapidly degrade. Therefore soil is not expected to be a compartment of concern. The risk to soil dwelling organisms is negligible. Moroever, the risk charaterisation of 2 -ethylhexylamine shows that the RCRs are < 1, indicating no uncacceptable risks for the environment. Therefore, no tests on soil organisms are provided.

The risk assessment may be performed based on equilibrium partitioning method (EPM).
