Description of key information

Additional information

The Guidance on information requirements and chemical safety assessment, Chapter R.7C: Endpoint specific guidance (May 2008), section R. 7.11.6.3, Table R.7.11-2, page 131, specifies the information needed to waive the terrestrial studies based on soil hazard categories. The log Pow of the test item is < 3. Therefore, accumulation and persistence of the registered substance in soil and organisms is unlikely. Supporting studies on phytotoxicity and toxicity to soil macroorganisms of C16 - 18 Tallow alcohol sulfate are presented. Based on these results and characteristics the test item is not expected to cause adverse effects on sediment organisms. The justification to use read-across data from supporting substances is provided in Section 13 of the IUCLID dossier.
