Description of key information

In accordance with point 9.2.1.3, Column 2 (specific rules for adaptation from column 1) Annex IX of Regulation (EC) No. 1907/2006 (REACH), Soil Simulation testing does not need to be conducted as the chemical safety assessment concludes that the substance is of no immediate concern to the environment. The available data are adequate for classification and labelling purposes and PBT assessment, so no further testing is required. Also direct and indirect exposure of the soil is unlikely

Exposure considerations:

Since DOTTG is only manufactured, formulated and industrial used in a 2.5 - 10 % DOTE/DOTI solution the exposure during manufacturing and Formulation is neglgible due to closed process equipment and low volatility of the substance

During manufacturing of PVC articles DOTTG is complety transformed into its degradation product DOTEC

Thus an exposure of consumers and the environment can be excluded.
