Description of key information

Long term: In accordance with Column 2 of REACH Annex X the study does not need to be conducted.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

Long-term toxicity

In accordance with Column 2 of REACH Annex X, long-term toxicity testing with terrestrial invertebrates (required in Section 9.4.4) is not needed as the chemical safety assessment according to Annex I indicates that this is not necessary. Moreover, considerable technical difficulties would be expected in the conduct of such a test, due to the very rapid biotic removal of the substance from the test system. Please refer to discussion of the long-term aquatic invertebrate and fish studies (Section 6.1.2 and 6.1.4), and evidence of rapid removal in non-sterilised soils during method development for the adsorption/desorption study with natural soils (Section 5.4.1 and 5.2.3).
