Description of key information

The chemical safety assessment according to Annex I indicates that it is not necessary to conduct the soil simulation test. 

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

The following information is taken into account for any hazard / risk / persistency assessment:

The chemical safety assessment according to Annex I indicates that it is not necessary to conduct the soil simulation test.

Simulation test (soil) is not considered necessary because:

- The substance is used under highly controlled conditions and, therefore, exposure of the terrestrial environment is low.

- The risk characterization ratios (RCRs) for the terrestrial compartment, based on the assumption that the hydrolysis products of MS-Silane are not biodegradable at all, are <1.
