Description of key information

There is one short term GLP study with earthworms conducted with ammonium thiocyanate following OECD 207 guideline.  The 14 day LC50 is > 1000 mg/kg soil dw

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Short-term EC50 or LC50 for soil macroorganisms:
1 000 mg/kg soil dw

Additional information

Despite lack of chemical analysis this study complies fully to the OECD guideline for this test. It is however still important to consider possible biodegradation of the substance during the test which may have affected the exposure to the test animals. Due to the ready biodegradable nature of this substance the actual exposure is likely to be significantly less than the nominals reported here. This study is therefore reliable with restrictions
