Additional information

Terrestrial toxicity testing in soil macro-organisms, soil arthropods, terrestrial plants and soil micro-organisms was not conducted. The substance does not have a high potential to adsorb to soil, based upon its experimentally-determined adsorption coefficient (Koc) of 825 L/kg (i.e., log Koc= 2.916) for tetrapropenyl succinic anhydride, by read-across based on a grouping of substances (category approach). The log Koc= 2.916 is substantially below the criterion that is indicative of strong binding to soil (i.e., log Koc> 4, in accordance with ECHA, Chapter R.7.a, “Endpoint-specific guidance”, Guidance on information requirements and chemical safety assessment, May 2008, Section R.7.1.15, p. 154).  In addition, when soil toxicity was evaluated on the basis of aquatic toxicity values and equilibrium partitioning, the risk characterization ratios for soil were below one, thus showing that exposures of organisms in the terrestrial compartment do not require further evaluation.
