Description of key information

In accordance with section 9.4 of Column 2 of REACH Annex IX, studies to investigate effects on terrestrial organisms do not need to be conducted if direct and indirect exposure of the soil compartment is unlikely. BPA-DA is not marketed as such in the EU, but as a monomer in a polymer only and the residual levels are below 0.1 %. Furthermore, the Chemical Safety Assessment does not indicate a need for such further studies. Therefore, the exposure and emissions to the environment are considered to be negligible and it is considered justified to omit the short- and long-term toxicity testing.
