Additional information

Based on the use pattern of the substance, intentional releases to the soil compartment are not expected.  In accordance with Column 2 of Annex IX of the Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) legislation, if direct and indirect exposure of soil is unlikely, a biodegradation in soil study does not need to be conducted, therefore the endpoint is being waived.
