Description of key information

Additional information

The test substance is not supposed to be directly applied to soil. Further, the test substance is readily biodegradable and hence, in case of indirect exposure of soil, 2,2'-methyliminodiethanol is expected to rapidly degrade. Therefore soil is not expected to be a compartment of concern. The risk to soil dwelling organisms is considered to be negligible.

Moreover, terrestric toxicity testing is not triggered by the results of the exposure assessment and the risk characterization. The risk-characterisation ratios (RCR) do not indicate a risk for the environment (RCR < 1).
