Study scientifically not justified.
According to Column 2 of REACH Annexes IX and X (standard information requirements for substances manufactured or imported in quantities of 100 tonnes per year or more and 1,000 tonnes per year or more) of Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006, studies on effects on terrestrial organisms do not need to be conducted if direct and indirect exposure of the soil compartment is unlikely and in the absence of toxicity data for soil organisms, the equilibrium partitioning method may be applied to assess the hazard to soil organisms.
The use pattern of naphthalene limits the risk for direct or indirect exposure of the soil compartment. Unlike pesticides e.g., naphthalene is not intentionally released into the environment. Production, handling and use, in most cases take place in closed systems with very low releases to the environment and with low probability of any significant release to the environment from products.
