Justification for type of information:
According to Reach Annex IX section 9.4., as the chemical safety assessment of Eucalyptus oil indicates no need to investigate terrestrial testing, toxicity to plants is based on a conservative estimation from Chesar (equilibrium partitioning method).
Eucalyptus oil is not supposed to be directly applied to soil and an indirect exposure to soil via sewage sludge transfer is unlikely since the substance is readily biodegradable. For a substance being considered as „readily biodegradable“, it can be assumed that it will be biodegraded within the STP process and as a consequence a transfer to the soil compartment is not expected. Therefore, no tests on soil organisms are provided.
