Toxicity to soil macroorganisms except arthropods

Administrative data

toxicity to soil macroorganisms except arthropods: long-term
Data waiving:
study scientifically not necessary / other information available
Justification for data waiving:
Justification for type of information:
With a Koc value at 599.8 L/kg and a log Kow value lower than 5.0, the substance does not have a high potential to adsorb to soil. The substance is readily biodegradable so is not persistent, and is not very toxic to aquatic organisms with E(L)C50 values greater than 1.0 mg/L. Therefore, according to section R., Chapter R.7c of the ECHA Guidance on information requirements and chemical safety assessment (version 3.0, June 2017), the substance should be classed as a soil hazard category 1, and thus, the Equilibrium Partitioning Method (EPM) has been used as a screening assessment, for assessing the hazard to terrestrial organisms. As RCR soil are lower than 1.0, no toxicity testing for soil organisms need to be done.
