According to column 2 of Annex IX, section 9.4, testing on short
term toxicity on terrestrial organisms does not need to be conducted if
direct and indirect exposure of the soil compartment is unlikely.
According to column 2 of Annex X section 9.4 long-term toxicity testing
with terrestrial organisms shall only be proposed if the chemical safety
assessment indicates the need to investigate further the effects of the
substance on terrestrial organisms.
Testing is waived since ethyl-(S)-lactate is not supposed to be
directly applied to soil, has a low potential for adsorption to soil
(Koc estimated is 2.23), is readily biodegradable and is rapidly
hydrolysed to lactic acid and ethanol in-vivo, neither of which are
toxic to terrestrial organisms.
Since ethyl-(S)-lactate has a low bioaccumulation potential and a
high degradability, no risk of secondary poisoning is identified and
therefore no toxicity testing on birds is required.
