Description of key information

Waiving of Study:
The substance has no high potential to adsorb to soil and is not very persistent. Chlorine dissipates rapidly in contact with soil with a DT50 of < 1 minutes. The environmental risk assessment for the terrestrial compartment was performed on the basis of a calculated PNECsoil of 0.03 µg/kg, derived from the PNECaquatic using the equilibrium partitioning method. The resulting PEC/PNECsoil values are < 1. Studies in honeybees and other beneficial arthropods are only required for insecticides, acaricides and substances in products to control other arthropods which are used outdoors. Consequently, no studies required for hypochlorite.
In accordance with column 2 of REACH Annex IX, short-term toxicity to invertebrates- antropodes (required in section 9.4.1) does not need to be conducted as the equilibrium partitioning method was applied to assess the hazard to soil organisms.
