Additional information

In accordance with section 1 of REACH Annex XI (testing does not appear scientifically necessary), the long-term toxicity to sediment organisms (required in section 9.5.1) does not need to be conducted as the hazard assessment performed during the chemical safety assessment concludes that the substance is not classified and is of no immediate concern to the environment. The available data is adequate for classification and labeling purposes and PBT assessment is not required for inorganic substances so no further testing is required.

No experimental data on sediment toxicity exist. The data are not required as the hazard assessment performed during the chemical safety assessment concludes that the substance is not classified and the risk assessment concludes that the compound is of no immediate concern to the environment. A recommendation is made to conduct an adsorption/desorption study in accordance with OECD Guideline 106 and the subsequent PNEC sediment calculated by the equilibrium partitioning method.
