Applicant's summary and conclusion

No direct esposure to soil is predicted, based on the use pattern, hence assessment of this parameter is not applicable.
Executive summary:

In accordance with Column 2 adaptation statement of REACH Annex IX, information requirement, soil biodegradation testing does not need to be conducted as there is proposed to be no direct or indirect exposure to soil for this test substance. The test substance could only be potentially exposed to the environment via waste water from dyeing processes. It is not likely to sorb onto soil based upon the basis of the low soil adsorption value, low partition coefficient value and high water solubility (and therefore high hydrophilicity) mitigating exposure to soil in favour of environmental waters.
