Description of key information

No effects on survival were observed in a chronic reproduction study with the collembolan Folsomia candida (Moser and Egeler, 2007b; Staples et al., 2010). A NOEC of 500 mg/kg soil was determined based on number of juveniles.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Long-term EC10, LC10 or NOEC for soil dwelling arthropods:
500 mg/kg soil dw

Additional information

No effect on survival was observed during a chronic 28-day test with the collembolan, Folsomia candida, exposed to Bisphenol A in artificial soil (Moser and Egeler, 2007b; Staples et al., 2010). The number of juveniles was reduced at the highest dose tested, 1000 mg/kg dw, compared to controls so the NOEC established in the study was 500 mg/kg dw.
