Additional information

In Annex X of the Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006 REACH concerning the Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH), it is suggested, that "in the absence of toxicity data for soil organisms, the equilibrium partitioning method may be applied to assess the hazard to soil organisms. The choice of the appropriate tests depends on the outcome of the chemical safety assessment. In particular for substances that have a high potential to adsorb to soil or that are very persistent, the registrant shall consider long-term toxicity testing instead of short-term.These studies do not need to be conducted if direct and indirect exposure of the soil compartment is unlikely."

At environmentally relevant concentrations, the substance has a low potential for adsorption or bioaccumulation. Distribution modelling clearly shows the main target for environmental distribution will be water and air (see chapter 5.4). Therefore exposure of terrestrial organisms is unlikely.
