Description of key information

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

In Annex IX of Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006, it is laid down that toxicity testing on terrestrial species shall be proposed by the registrant if the chemical safety assessment indicates the need to investigate further the effects on soil organisms. In chapter 9 and 10 of the attached CSR it is clearly stated that the substance does not pose any threat to the environment. According to Annex I of this regulation, the chemical safety assessment triggers further action when the substance or the preparation meets the criteria for classification as dangerous according to Regulation EC 1272/2008 or is assessed to be a PBT or vPvB. The hazard assessment of IBVE reveals neither a need to classify the substance as dangerous to the environment, nor is it a PBT or vPvB substance, nor are there any further indications that the substance may be hazardous to the environment. Furthermore, the substance is readily biodegradable fulfilling the 10-day window criterion. Additionally, as the logKoc is below 3 and the substance has no cationic properties, a low adsorption potential is indicated. Therefore, binding to sewage sludge is unlikely and as a consequence a transfer to the soil compartment is not expected. Furthermore, the substance is highly volatile and will mainly distribute into the atmosphere. As a consequence, no tests on terrestrial organisms are provided.
