Description of key information


Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

The initial chemical safety assessment based on defaults values and assumptions showed a potential of concentrations in sediment reaching levels that may pose a risk to sediment dwelling invertebrates. However, additional specific measures assuring no release to water or soil result in expected concentrations in water and sediment, which form no significant risk to water or sediment dwelling organisms. According to Annex XI of the REACH regulation, testing may be omitted for this reason (section 3, "Substance-tailored exposure-driven testing").
