Description of key information

The chemical safety assessment according to Annex I of Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006 does not indicate the need to investigate further toxicity testing with terrestrial organisms.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

A chronic test investigating the toxicity to earthworms according to OECD 222 with the test substance is available resulting in a NOEC (56 d) of 171 mg/kg dw for Eisenia andrei indicating low toxicity to terrestrial organisms.Due to a moderate potential for adsorption to particles present in soil, tests with soil-dwelling organisms that feed on soil particles are most relevant for the evaluation of soil toxicity of N-methyl-N-(C18-(unsaturated)alkanoyl)glycine (EC 701-177-3). Thus, an invertebrates test for this substance is available and test with terrestrial arthropods is not required.
