Description of key information

Study WAIVED - No data on the effect of the substance on sediment organisms are available. Data on sediment organisms are not considered to be required for the substance. In accordance with REACH legislation the test does not need to be conducted if direct and indirect exposure to the sediment compartment is unlikely. This lack of exposure potential is confirmed by the handling and use of the substance as well as fugacity modeling. In addition, the results of the CSR for this substance and the PEC/PNEC ratios for the local and regional terrestrial compartment indicate no risk. ECHA Chapter R.7B guidance states that if the PEC/PNEC ratio is below 1, then no risk for the compartment is indicated and there is no need to perform further tests. Furthermore, this substance does not meet the B or vB criterion and it is not considered to be a PBT.
