Study scientifically not necessary.
There are no studies available regarding
toxicity of naphthalene to terrestrial plants.
According to Column 2 of REACH Annexes
IX and X (standard information requirements for substances manufactured
or imported in quantities of 100 tonnes per year or more and 1,000
tonnes per year or more) of Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006, studies on
effects on terrestrial organisms do not need to be conducted if direct
and indirect exposure of the soil compartment is unlikely and in the
absence of toxicity data for soil organisms, the equilibrium
partitioning method may be applied to assess the hazard to soil
The use pattern of naphthalene limits
the risk for direct or indirect exposure of the soil compartment. Unlike
pesticides e.g., naphthalene is not intentionally released into the
environment. Production, handling and use, in most cases take place in
closed systems with very low releases to the environment and with low
probability of any significant release to the environment from products.
