no

Description of key information

The substance is not supposed to be directly applied to soil. Based on the PC properties of the substance (extremely low solubility in water and octanol), a low adsorption potential is indicated. Therefore, binding to sewage sludge is unlikely and as a consequence a transfer to the soil compartment is not expected. Therefore, it can be assumed that there is no direct and indirect exposure to the environment 


In addition, the test is waived according to "column 2" in Annex IX of REGULATION (EC) No 1907/2006 (CSA does not indicate need for further investigations. Substance considered to be not readily biodegradable, no further relevant information expected from additional testing)

Key value for chemical safety assessment
