Description of key information

The test substance 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 arthropods are provided.
In addition, the substance shows no effects up to the limit concentration in acute aquatic toxicity tests. Furthermore, the substance shows no potential for accumulation in soil due to its ready biodegradable properties, its LogPow value and is not ionisable. Therefore, an impact on terrestrial organisms is very unlikely and thus, studies on soil organisms are not required.
