Description of key information

The performance of a test for toxicity to terrestrial arthropods is scientifically unjustified.
REACh Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006, Annex IX, Sect. 9.4, Col. 2, states as follows:
“9.4: Effects on terrestrial organisms: These studies do not need to be conducted if direct and indirect exposure of the soil compartment is unlikely.”
Direct and indirect exposure of the test item to soil is highly unlikely. It can be assumed that upon contact with soil and organic matter, the test item undergoes rapid degradation (hydrolysis) resulting in the formation of respective degradation products. Furthermore, the test item is inherently biodegradable. Thus, testing toxicity to terrestrial arthropods was considered not scientifically justified.
