Description of key information

With a Koc value at 599.8 L/kg and a log Kow value lower than 5.0, the substance does not have a high potential to adsorb to soil. The substance is readily biodegradable so is not persistent in the environment, and is not very toxic to aquatic organisms with E(L)C50 values greater than 1.0 mg/L. Therefore, according to section R., Chapter R.7c of the ECHA Guidance on information requirements and chemical safety assessment (version 3.0, June 2017), the substance should be classed as a soil hazard category 1, and thus, the Equilibrium Partitioning Method (EPM) has been used as a screening assessment, for assessing the hazard to terrestrial organisms. As RCR soil are lower than 1.0, no toxicity testing for soil organisms need to be done.
