Description of key information

No soil microorganism toxicity studies are available for epichlorohydrin.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

Direct and indirect exposure of the terrestrial environment is unlikely since epichlorohydrin is manufactured and used under controlled conditions and is not expected to be released into the environment (See Chapter 9 of the CSR). Thus, no terrestrial toxicity testing is necessary for epichlorohydrin.
