Description of key information

No NOEC neither LC50 could be derived from the experimental data available. The Petrorisk model was used for the risk assessment;

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

According to Chapter R.7c (Endpoint specific guidance) of ECHA Guidance on information requirements and chemical safety assessment, in the case of readily biodegradable substances which are not directly applied to soil it is generally assumed that the substance will not enter the terrestrial environment and as such there is no need for testing of soil dwelling arthropods. According to the data provided in the dossier, “Hydrocarbons, C14-C20, aliphatics, ≤2% aromatics” are readily biodegradable. Therefore, testing on soil dwelling arthropods is not required.
