Additional information

According to the standard requirements set in Regulation (EC) No. 1907/2006, Annexes VII and VIII, information regarding the effects of the substance to sediment organisms does not need to be presented at this tonnage band (10-100 t/y). Moreover, the environmental exposure assessment performed according to Annex XI, Section 3 for this substance shows that the Risk Characterization Ratio (i.e. PEC/PNEC ratio) in the sediment compartment is < 1 and therefore, under the current exposure conditions, 2 -Hexyl-2 '-hydroxy-5 'methyldecananilide (AF-654) does not pose a risk to sediment organisms.
