Additional information

In accordance with REACH Annex X, 9.5, column 2, long-term sediment toxicity testing shall be proposed by the registrant if the CSA indicates the need to investigate further the effects of the substance and/or relevant degradation products on sediment organisms. As the substance has no relevant adsorptive properties (log Koc <<3), has no bioaccumulation potential (BCF 0.5 -7.0, measured; NITE, 2000), is readily biodegradable, and is not classified for environmental hazards according to REGULATION (EC) No 1272/2008, no relevant risk for sediment dwelling organisms is expected. In conclusion, sediment toxicity testing is not required and the EPM method was applied to estimate the hazard for sediment organisms.
