Description of key information

In accordance with column 2 of Annex IX of the REACH regulation, the study does not need to be conducted because direct and indirect exposure of the soil compartment is unlikely considering its use as a solvent and marker in oil industry and even if the chemical is accidentally exposed to the soil compartment, there is likely to be little or no adsorption of chemical in soil compartment on the basis of logKoc value (less than 1.5).
