Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

A test is not available. According to rules for adaptation of the standard information requirements, column 2, tests on soil microorganisms are not needed if the hazard to soil organisms assessed using the equilibrium partitioning method is acceptable. Furthermore, due to the chemical properties of MPA (low volatility, the substance is readily biodegradable, the potential for adsorption is low), indirect exposure and long-term exposure of terrestrial organisms to the substance is considered to be low.
