Additional information

In Annex X section 9.4 of Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006, it is laid down that tests on terrestrial organisms shall be proposed by the registrant if the chemical safety assessment indicates the need to investigate further the effects on terrestrial organisms. Furthermore, according to Annex X section 9.4 of Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006, those studies do not need to be conducted if direct or indirect exposure of the soil compartment is unlikely. The substance is not readily biodegradable. However, as the log Koc is below 3, a low adsorption potential is indicated. Therefore, binding to sewage sludge is unlikely and as a consequence a transfer to the soil compartment is not expected. This is supported by the results of the environmental risk estimation which does not indicate a risk for the compartment soil for any of the uses. In addition, the substance is not a PBT or vPvB substance. Consequently, no test on soil organisms is performed.
