Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

According to REACH regulation (Annex IX, 9.4.2, column 2), toxicity testing with soil microorganisms does not need to be conducted. Testing can be substituted by the equilibrium partitioning method, based on aquatic tests. Testing shall be proposed if the results of the safety assessment indicate the need. Accumulation of the target substance in soil compartments (and thus, potential exposure of soil micro-organisms) is unlikely as the substance is readily biodegradable.
