Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

The provision for sediment toxicity testing is contained within Columns 1 and 2 of Annex X of REACH. Column 2 of this Annex, describing the Specific Rules for Adaptation from Column 1, states:

"Long-term toxicity testing shall be proposed by the registrant if the chemical safety assessment indicates the need to investigate further the effects of the substance and/or relevant degradation products on sediment organisms."

The data available for the substance indicate it is not hazardous. Consequently, the substance does not require classification nor a full chemical safety assessment (comprising hazard assessment, exposure assessment, and risk characterisation) under REACH. Ipso facto, in accordance with the Standard Information Requirements laid down by REACH (Annexes VII to X), sediment toxicity testing is not necessary.
