Description of key information

In accordance with column 2 of Annex IX 9.4 of EC 1907/2006 the testing is not required as direct and indirect exposure of soil is unlikely. Due to a lack of exposure and low risk demonstrated by RCRs of less than 1, there is no need to perform tests on the toxicity to soil organisms.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

No data on the terrestrial toxicity are available for Zinc O,O,O',O'-tetrabutyl bis(phosphorodithioate) and its source substances. To prove the safety of the substance to the environment an exposure assessment was carried out, resulting in a risk characterization ratio below 1. Therefore, due to a lack of exposure and low risk demonstrated by RCRs of less than 1, there is no need to perform tests on the toxicity to soil organisms.
