Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

In Annex X section 9.4 of Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006, it is laid down that tests on terrestrial organisms shall be proposed by the registrant if the chemical safety assessment indicates the need to investigate further the effects on terrestrial organisms. According to Annex I of this regulation, the chemical safety assessment triggers further action when the substance or the preparation meets the criteria for classification as dangerous according to Regulation EC 1272/2008 or is assessed to be a PBT or vPvB. The hazard assessment of the substance reveals neither a need to classify the substance as dangerous to the environment, nor is it a PBT or vPvB substance.

 

Furthermore, according to Annex X section 9.4 of Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006, those studies do not need to be conducted if direct or indirect exposure of the soil compartment is unlikely. The substance is considered to be only industrially used. Therefore, direct exposure to the soil compartment is unlikely. In addition, indirect exposure to soil is unlikely since the substance is readily biodegradable (but without fulfilling the 10-day window criterion). For substances being considered as „readily biodegradable“, it can be assumed that they will be biologically degraded within the STP-process. As the log Koc and log Pow of the substance is below 3 and no cationic and surface-active properties are given a low adsorption potential is indicated. Hence, an adsorption to soil unlikely and, as a consequence, a transfer to the soil compartment is unlikely.

 

Therefore, no further tests on terrestrial plants are provided.
