Description of key information

Additional information

The substance exhibits an adsorption coefficient (log Koc) below 5 and is readily biodegradable. Moreover, the substance is not acutely very toxic in the aquatic compartment (EC/LC50 for fish, Daphnia and algae above 1 mg/L) and of low toxicity to activated sludge microorganisms. In case of exposure to soil, the substance is expected to rapidly degrade, thus the hazard to terrestrial organisms is negligible. Hence, the Equilibrium Partitioning Method is sufficient to calculate the PNECs values for the terrestrial compartment according to the “Guidance on information requirements and chemical safety assessment Chapter R.7c: Endpoint specific guidance”, Section 7.11.6 Integrated Testing Strategy for Effects on Terrestrial Organisms (ECHA 2008).
