Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

The substance exhibits an adsorption coefficient (log Koc) below 5 and is readily biodegradable. Moreover, the substance is not toxic in the aquatic compartment in concentrations above 1 mg/L (all EC/LC50 for fish, Daphnia and algae are higher than 1 mg/L). In case of exposure to soil, the substance is expected to rapidly degrade, thus the hazard to terrestrial organisms is negligible. Hence, the Equilibrium Partitioning Method is sufficient to calculate the PNECs values for the terrestrial compartment in accordance with the “Guidance on information requirements and chemical safety assessment Chapter R.7c: Endpoint specific guidance”, Section 7.11.6 Integrated Testing Strategy for Effects on Terrestrial Organisms (ECHA 2008).
