Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

The Guidance on information requirements and chemical safety assessment, Chapter R.7C: Endpoint specific guidance (November 2014), section R., Table R.7.11-2, page 145, specifies the information needed to waive the terrestrial studies based on soil hazard categories.

The registered substance has a log Pow <3 and exhibits a good potential for inherent biodegradability. Therefore, accumulation and persistence of the registered substance in soil and organisms is very unlikely. Furthermore, although the registered substance might adsorb to soil (estimated log Koc = 3.8), it is not expected to cause adverse effects on terrestrial organisms based on a PNEC soil derived from a chronic earthworm study. Consequently further terrestrial toxicity tests are not needed.
