Description of key information

Additional information

No experimental data on terrestrial organisms are currently available. As the substance does not indicate high adsorption (log Koc <3) and is not persistent nor very persistent; and there is no indication that the substance is very toxic (EC/LC50 <1 mg/L for algae, daphnia or fish), the substance belongs according to REACH Guidance R.7C Table R.7.11-2 to soil hazard category 1. According to Annex IX, 9.4, column 2 of Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006, the equilibrium partitioning method may be applied to assess the hazard to soil organisms. The results of this risk assessment covering all relevant exposures throughout the life cycle of the submission item demonstrate an absence of a risk to the environment. The environmental concentrations were predicted and compared to the respective PNECs. The resulting RCRs for all identified uses were clearly below 1. Consequently, a need to investigate further the effects on terrestrial organisms is not indicated.
