Description of key information

Additional information

No experimental data are available. The test substance is not directly applied to soil and an indirect exposure to soil via sewage sludge transfer is unlikely since the substance is readily biodegradable. For a substance being considered as „readily biodegradable“, it can be assumed that it will be biodegraded within the STP process and as a consequence the substance will not enter the terrestrial environment. Therefore, there is no need for testing of soil organisms (ECHA, R7C, R7.11.2.1).

Furthermore, it could be demonstrated that based on the PNECsoil derived by equilibrium partitioning method, all uses are safe also for the soil compartment. Therefore, no tests on soil organisms are provided.
