Description of key information

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

The results of the chemical safety assessment according to Annex I indicate no need to investigate the effects on sediment organisms since all RCRs for this compartment are below 1. Evaluation was done with a PNEC derived by EPM method as a first screening approach. Furthermore physico-chemical properties (log Koc 1.76) and ready biodegradability indicate a low potential for adsorption to sediment. Therefore, according to column 2 of Annex X of REACH regulation 1907/2006 the testing of long-term toxicity to sediment organisms is not necessary.
