Description of key information

According to Regulation (EC) 1907/2006, Annex IX, Section 9.4.1 to 9.4.3, Column 2, studies on the toxicity to terrestrial arthropods do not need to be 
conducted if indirect and direct exposure of the soil compartment is unlikely. An indirect exposure to soil via sewage sludge transfer is unlikely since
the substance is readily biodegradable (84% O2 consumption in 27 d; BASF AG, 1990, report no. 1891666; see IUCLID Ch. 5.2.1). For a substance being
considered as „readily biodegradable“, it can be assumed that it will be biodegraded within the STP process and as a consequence a transfer to the soil
compartment is not expected. The substance is not supposed to be applied directly to soil. Consequently, no tests on terrestrial arthropods are performed.
