Description of key information

Additional information

The direct release to soil can be excluded for the exposure scenario. For indirect exposure to soil, firstly the low vapour pressure and high water solubility can prove that little iodide will distribute in air, which means no sodium iodide will be deposited from air. Secondly, the adsorption to sludge can be excluded due to high water solubility and low adsorption potential; thus the indirect exposure to soil on sludge application can be ruled out. In conclusion, the exposure to soil is unlikely. According to REACH guidance “Guidance on information requirements and chemical safety assessment Chapter R.7c: Endpoint specific guidance”, if the exposure to soil can be excluded, the toxicity test to terrestrial organisms can be omitted.
