Description of key information

 The results of the risk assessment covering all relevant exposures throughout the life cycle of the submission item demonstrate the absence of a risk to the environment. The environmental concentrations were predicted and compared to the respective PNECs (in the absence of toxicity data for soil organisms, the equilibrium partitioning method was applied to assess the hazard to soil organisms). The resulting RCRs for all identified uses were clearly below 1. Consequently, a need to investigate further the effects on terrestrial organisms is not indicated.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

Toxicity to sediment organisms is not a standard information requirement in Annex IX. Moreover, as the exposure assessment (see chapter 9) does not indicate the need to investigate further the effects on sediment organisms (as the uses and applications of the substance do not involve contact with water, sediment or soil), no further long-term testing on sediment is proposed.
