Description of key information

No toxicity tests on terrestrial plants are available.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

AMP is highly water soluble (completely miscible) and has a very low potential for adsorption to organic matter. Therefore, the predicted no effect concentration (PNEC) for soil was derived from the PNEC for freshwater using the equilibrium partitioning method. This method is applicable for substances where the toxicity in soils relates to the freely dissolved concentration in pore water. The risk characterisation shows that the PEC/PNEC ratio for soil is clearly < 1, indicating no need for further information and testing. Hence, testing of effects on terrestrial organisms can be waived for AMP.
