Description of key information

An experimental study to assess toxicity to terrestrial arthropods has not been conducted as the toxicity of the substance to terrestrial invertebrates is assessed through experimental data on terrestrial macro-organisms except arthropods.

Due to the technical challenges of testing volatile substances, a validated TLM-EqP framework was used to derive terrestrial effect values to act as supporting studies. These data were considered reliable; however, were not used in the PNEC derivation, since experimental data is available for other soil organisms. In addition published data by governmental body (Environment Canada, 2005) is available for terrestrial arthropods.
