Additional information

According to Regulation (EC) 1907 (2006) Annex IX section 9.4.1 column 2, a study on toxicity to soil invertebrates does not need to be conducted as the direct and indirect exposure of the soil compartment is unlikely. For the substance (MIPDA, CAS 93940-97-7) only industrial uses with adequate risk mitigating measures are foreseen. Indirect exposure via sewage sludge is not expected as sewage sludge from sewage treatment plants treating industrial sewage are expected to be incinerated. The substance is not supposed to be directly applied to soil. In addition, environmental exposure through widespread uses by professionals and consumers is excluded.  Further, the substance does not have the potential to bioaccumulate nor is it considered as a PBT/vPvB substance. In addition, the risk assessment results in Risk Characterization Ratios below 1. Hence, soil is not expected to be a compartment of concern. The risk to soil macroorganisms is negligible.
