No relevant effects.
This endpoint is covered by the category approach for soluble iron salts
(please see the section for physical and chemical properties for the
category justification/report format). Testing for this endpoint has
been waived in accordance with column 2 and Annex XI, part 3,
There are no standard terrestrial toxicity tests reported in the
literature, but data on effects of soluble iron salts in irrelevantly
high concentrations in food are known from the literature. Thus these
experiments are not relevant as this exposure path is irrelevant
Efroymson et al. (1997) provide some information on the toxicity of iron
to terrestrial arthropods. The reviewed study (Nottrot et al 1987)
evaluates the effects of iron in the diet of a springtail (Orchesella
cincta) fed green algae (Pleurococcus spp.) containing
various concentrations of iron for 21 days. Percent growth, feeding
activity, and molting were determined. Growth of the springtails was
reduced 42 % by a diet containing 7'533 mg/kg of iron, but a diet
containing 3'515 mg/kg of iron had no effect. The publication of Nottrot
et al (1987) does not provide sufficient details (e.g. with regard to
soil organic matter and pH) and was thus rejected for the assessment.
Nonetheless the data may indicate the level of effects and may be used
in a weight of evidence approach.
