JUSTIFICATION FOR DATA WAIVING
In accordance with Column 2 of REACH Annex X, the long-term toxicity to sediment organisms test is not required since the available data indicate that there is no need to investigate further the effects of the substance and/or relevant degradation products on sediment organisms.Sodium chlorite is a strong oxidizing agent and under proper reducing conditions is readily reduced to chloride, and to a lesser extent, chlorate. In strong acidic conditions, chlorite can change into chlorine dioxide (from pg. 11, USEPA/OPPTS; Reregistration Eligibility Decision (RED) for Chlorine Dioxide and Sodium Chlorite (Case 4023) p.1 (August 2006) EPA-HQ-OPP-2006-0328-0022/EPA 738-R-06-007.
