Additional information

The Sulfonium compound mixture is not supposed to be directly applied to soil and an indirect exposure to soil via sewage sludge transfer is unlikely since the substance is readily biodegradable. For a substance being considered as „readily biodegradable“, it can be assumed that it will be biodegraded within the STP process and as a consequence a transfer to the soil compartment is not expected. Therefore, no tests on terrestrial organisms are provided.

Furthermore, an exposure estimation was carried out. The calculated risk characterisation ratio's (RCR) for the soil compartment are less than 1. Hence, all identified uses of the substance are safe.
