Description of key information

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

For substances classified in hazard category 1, a screening of the risk assessment for soil organisms should be done on the basis of the equilibrium partitioning method (EPM; PNEC = 8.96 mg/kg soil dw).

The results of the safety assessment indicate that there is no apparent risk of N,N'-bis(3 -aminopropyl)ethylenediamine to the environment. Hence, toxicity testing for soil organisms does not need to be performed. Moreover, direct and indirect exposure of the soil compartment is unlikely. The test substance is not supposed to be directly applied to soil. Indirect exposure to soil is unlikely to occur in significant dimensions since, if any, relevant amounts of the substance will reach industrial STPs rather than domestic STPs. Sludge of industrial STPs will usually not be applied on agricultural soil but will be incinerated. Moreover, the substance is readily biodegradable. Therefore, exposure to soil can be neglected.
