Description of key information

No experimental data available - waiving according to Column 2 of Annex X, 9.5 (chemical safety assessment does not indicate need for further investigations of sediment toxicity).

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

Due to the physio-chemical properties of the substance (log Pow <0.3, log Koc = 1) a considerable exposure of the sediment compartment is unlikely. Furthermore the hazard assessment of the substance reveals neither a need to classify the substance as dangerous for the environment, nor is it a PBT or vPvB substance.

Thus, sediment is not expected to be a compartment of concern. Therefore and for reasons of animal welfare a toxicity study on sediment organisms is not provided.
