Description of key information

Additional information

No data could be identified for the terrestrial toxicity of methyl propyl ketone.

 

Waiving argument:

In accordance with column 2 of REACH Annexes IX and X, terrestrial studies do not need to be conducted if direct and indirect exposure of the soil compartment is unlikely. Direct exposure to soil is not likely, since the substance is not intentionally applied to soil. Indirect exposure to soil is also not likely since the substance is readily biodegradable and has a very low log Kow value suggesting a low adsorption potential. The equilibrium partitioning method will be applied to assess the hazard to soil organisms.
