Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

According to REACH regulation (Annex IX, 9.4.2, column II), short- and long-term toxicity testing with soil microorganisms does not need to be conducted. Testing shall be proposed if the results of the safety assessment indicates the need. The direct and indirect exposure of soil compartments is unlikely as the substance is readily biodegradable. The biodegradability of the substance is proved in a number of tests conducted under different conditions (aerobic, anaerobic) and in different environmental conditions (water, soil).
