Description of key information

Taking into account (i) the rapid dissociation of ammonium hydrogen sulfite and decomposition of sulfites and transformation of ammonium upon dissolution in environmental solutions, including sediment porewater, and respective participation in the natural nitrogen and sulfur cycle, (ii) ubiquitousness of ammonium and inorganic sulfur substances in sediment, (iii) essentiality of sulfur, and (iv) the lack of a potential for bioaccumulation and toxicity to aquatic organisms, the hazard potential of ammonium hydrogen sulfite in sediment can be expected to be low.

Key value for chemical safety assessment
