Additional information

Justification for the testing proposal for the earthworm reproduction test according to OECD 222 with Eisenia fetida.

The submission substance is expected to adsorb to soil indicated by a log Koc of 3.1. According to REACH Annex IX, column 2, the registrant shall consider long-term testing on terrestrial organisms for substances that have a high potential to adsorb to soil. Furthermore, according to ECHA Guidance R.7c, the submission substance is categorised into soil hazard category 3, for which the EPM method can be applied in order to assess the hazard to soil organisms, but must be supported by a confirmatory long-term soil toxicity test. One recommended OECD testing guideline is the earthworm reproduction test according to OECD 222, which is proposed by the registrant.
