Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

Additional information

As SAS is readily biodegradable and is not strongly sorbing to solids e.g. sludge, exposure of agricultural soil via sludge application is limited. According REACH Regulation 2006/1907/EEC, Annex X, 9.4, Column 2 terrestrial effects studies need not to be carried out if direct and indirect exposure of the soil compartment is unlikely. Therefore, waiving statements for Arthropods, Terrestrial plants, Soil microorganisms and Birds are given in the corresponding chapters.

Nevertheless a 56 d earthworm reproduction study was carried out, resulting in a NOEC reproduction of 470 mg/kg dw (a.i.). In addition a 3 d nematode reproduction study with a NOEC of 939 mg/kg dw (a.i.) is available. Both studies are the basis of a PNEC terrestrial of 9.4 mg/kg dw (a.i.). This PNEC terrestrial based on measured data can be compared with a PNEC terrestrial equilibrium partitioning from aquatic data being 1.25 mg/kg dw.
