Description of key information

In accordance with column 2 of REACH Annex IX and X, studies on sediment toxicity do not need to be conducted as the substance has a low potential for adsorption (log Kow< 1). No significant concentrations are expected in the sediment compartment. This is supported by exposure assessment with EUSES. The maximal local PECs that were calculated were 2.37E-3 mg/kg (w. w.) for the freshwater sediment and 8.87E-4 mg/kg (w. w.) for marine sediment. Since these concentrations are very low, no significant exposure of sediment species is assumed and therefore toxicity tests are not needed.
