The chemical safety assessment according to Annex I of Regulation (EC) No. 1907/2006 does not indicate the need to investigate further the toxicity to terrestrial arthropods.
No tests with soil organisms are available for Fatty acids, C18-unsatd.,
dimers, 2-ethylhexyl esters (CAS No. 68334-05-4), but due to the
substance properties and use, a hazard to soil organisms is assumed to
be low. Due to its ready biodegradability it is not likely that
terrestrial organisms will be exposed to Fatty acids, C18-unsatd.,
dimers, 2-ethylhexyl esters since it will be ultimately degraded in
sewage treatment plants. Furthermore, the substance is not directly
applied to soil it is assumed that the substance will not enter the
terrestrial environment and as such there is no need for testing of soil
organisms (Guidance on information requirements and chemical safety
assessment, R7c, pg. 109, ECHA 2012). Furthermore Fatty acids,
C18-unsatd., dimers, 2-ethylhexyl esters showed no toxicity in studies
with aquatic organisms.
Thus, the generation of soil toxicity data is not required.
