Description of key information

In the absence of toxicity data for soil organisms, the PNECsoil has been calculated from the PNECwater using the Equilibrium Partitioning Method (EPM). 

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

The exposure assessment using PNECsoil (screen) indicates a slight risk for the terrestrial compartment (see CSR, chapter 10). Although the risk is anticipated to be controlled due to lower expected exposure to soil compared to those predicted using EUSES, a proposal has been made to generate soil toxicity data to refine the hazard assessment. The substance belongs to soil hazard category 2 (REACH guidance, Table R.7.11 -2) and in line with the integrated testing strategy (ECHA Figure R.7.11-3 and Table R.7.11-2) it is proposed that a confirmatory short-term soil toxicity testing with invertebrates (e.g. earthworms) be conducted.
