Description of key information

In accordance with Regulation (EC) No. 1907/2006, Annex IX, column 2, 9.4 further studies on the effects on terrestrial organisms do not have to be conducted since the chemical safety assessment indicates that there is no need. 

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

No experimental data on toxicity to terrestrial arthropods are available for Propyleneglycol dioleate (CAS 105-62-4).

The substance is characterised by a high log Koc indication a considerable potential for adsorption to the soil particles. Therefore, tests with soil-dwelling organisms that feed on soil particles are most relevant for the evaluation of soil toxicity. Available studies with the structurally related substances butylene glycol dicaprylate / dicaprate (CAS 853947-59-8) and decanoic acid, mixed diesters with octanoic acid and propylene glycol (CAS 68583-51-7) did not show any mortality to earthworms in acute tests according to OECD 207 and EU Method C.8, respectively (LC50 > 1000 mg/kg soil dw). The chemical safety assessment according to Annex I of Regulation (EC) No. 1907/2006 does not indicate the need to investigate further the toxicity to terrestrial arthropods.
