Ecotoxicological information

Toxicity to soil macroorganisms except arthropods

Administrative data

Endpoint:
toxicity to soil macroorganisms except arthropods: short-term
Data waiving:
exposure considerations
Justification for data waiving:
the study does not need to be conducted because direct and indirect exposure of the soil compartment is unlikely
Justification for type of information:
JUSTIFICATION FOR DATA WAIVING
In accordance with Annex IX, Column 2, Section 9.4, studies to assess the effects on terrestrial organisms do not need to be conducted if direct and indirect exposure of the soil compartment is unlikely. No direct exposure to soil is anticipated as industrial sewage sludge is not applied to agricultural soils. Indirect exposure is also not likely to occur as atmospheric venting is prevented during end use by the use of chemical scrubbers, meaning there is no intended release of the substance to the atmospheric environment.
