Reference
Endpoint:
toxicity to soil macroorganisms except arthropods: long-term
Type of information:
experimental study planned
Justification for type of information:
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.
Qualifier:
according to
Guideline:
OECD Guideline 222 (Earthworm Reproduction Test (Eisenia fetida/Eisenia andrei))

Description of key information
