Description of key information

Additional information

In accordance with REACH Annex IX and X, 9.4, Column 2, the EPM method may be applied to assess the hazard for soil organisms and long-term toxicity testing shall only be proposed by the registrant if the results of the CSA indicate the need to investigate further the effects of the substance and/or degradation products on terrestrial organisms. As the substance is ready biodegradable, not assumed to be highly adsorptive to soil (log Kow < 3, no other indications of high adsorption), and of low aquatic toxicity (EC/LC50 > 1 mg/L) the substance was assigned to soil hazard category 1, according to the ITS as described in ECHA Guidance on Information Requirements and CSA, R.7c. Applying the EPM method to assess the hazard for soil organisms no risks were identified and in conclusion soil toxicity testing is not required.

In accordance with REACHAnnex X, 9.4, Column 2, the available mammalian dataset may be used for the risk assessment (see Section 7). According to ECHA Guidance on Information Requirements and CSA, R.7c, risk from secondary poisoning is unlikely for a substance which is readily biodegradable, and has a low potential for bioaccumulation in fish and earthworms (which is the case with the submission substance).
