Additional information

In accordance with column 2 of REACH Annex IX in the absence of toxicity data for soil organisms, the equilibrium partitioning method may be applied to assess the hazard to soil organisms. As the substance was not shown to be non-persistent and there is no indication that the substance is very toxic (EC/LC50 <1 mg/L for algae, daphnia or fish), the substance belongs according to REACH Guidance R.7C Table R.7.11-2 to soil hazard category 3.

Therefore, a long-term toxicity test (reproduction) with soil macroinvertebrate (earthworm, OECD testing guideline 222) was proposed to be carried out.
