Additional information

According to Regulation (EC) 1907 (2006) Annex IX section 9.4.2, column 2, a study on toxicity to soil micro-organisms does not need to be conducted as the substance is considered to be readily biodegradable. The test substance is not supposed to be directly applied to soil and an indirect exposure to soil via sewage sludge transfer is unlikely since the substance is readily biodegradable, according to OECD criteria (see IUCLID Ch.5.2.1). For a substance being considered as „readily biodegradable“, it can be assumed that it will be biodegraded within the STP process and as a consequence a transfer to the soil compartment is not expected. As a consequence, no tests on soil micro-organisms are provided.

 

The substance is not bioaccumulative. Therefore, and because of reasons of animal welfare, no study on toxicity in birds is performed.
