Additional information

In accordance with REACH Annex IX, 9.4, Column 2, the EPM method may be applied to assess the hazard for soil 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.
