Additional information

Toxicity to soil macroorganisms except arthropods

The substance shows no effects up to the limit concentration in acute aquatic toxicity tests. Furthermore, the substance shows no potential for accumulation in soil due to its ready biodegradable properties, its LogPow value and is not ionisable. Therefore,an impact on terrestrial organisms is very unlikely and thus, studies on soil organisms are not required.

Toxicity to terrestrial plants

The substance shows no effects up to the limit concentration in acute aquatic toxicity tests. Furthermore, the substance shows no potential for accumulation in soil due to its ready biodegradable properties, its LogPow value and is not ionisable.

Toxicity to soil microorganisms

The substance shows no effects up to the limit concentration in acute aquatic toxicity tests. Furthermore, the substance shows no potential for accumulation in soil due to its ready biodegradable properties, its LogPow value and is not ionisable. Therefore, an impact on terrestrial organisms is very unlikely and thus, studies on soil organisms are not required.

 

Toxicity to birds

No data on terrestrial toxicity are available. However, in chapter R.10 of the Guidance on information requirements and chemical safety assessment (ECHA 2008, p. 42) concerning the Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH), it is laid down that "the chemicals of concern with respect to secondary poisoning include lipophilic organic chemicals and some metal compounds". The substance shows a low bioaccumulative (log Pow = 1.51) potential. Thus, a relevant and considerable exposure of birds is not expected. Therefore, and for reasons of animal welfare studies on bird toxicity are not provided.

 

Toxicity to other above-ground organisms

This is not a standard information requirement in Annex IX/X of Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006.
