Justification for soil organisms:

'Diallyl 2,2'-oxydiethyl dicarbonate' is not supposed to be directly applied to soil. Further, the test substance is readily biodegradable and hence, in case of indirect exposure of soil, 'Diallyl 2,2'-oxydiethyl dicarbonate' is expected to rapidly degrade. Therefore soil is not expected to be a compartment of concern. The risk to soil dwelling organisms is negligible. 

In the abscence of test data for the terrestrial compartment are available, derivation of PNECsedwill be based an acute data from aquatic studies by using the equilibrium partitioning method.

Justification for birds:

In Annex X of the Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006, it is suggested, that in case of long term toxicity testing to birds "any need for testing should be carefully considered taking into account the large mammalian dataset that is usually available at this tonnage level." Furthermore, ECHA (2008) states in the "Guidance on information requirements and chemical safety assessment Chapter R.7c" that "given that mammalian toxicity is considered in detail for human health protection, the need for additional data for birds must be considered very carefully – new tests are a last resort in the data collection process." As the substance has a low potential for bioaccumulation (log Kow < 3) and because of reasons of animal welfare, no study on toxicity in birds is performed.
