Description of key information

According to “ANNEX IX- STANDARD INFORMATION REQUIREMENTS FOR SUBSTANCES MANUFACTURED OR IMPORTED IN QUANTITIES OF 100 TONNES OR MORE”, a simulation testing on ultimate degradation in surface water, the study does not need to be performed if the substance is ready biodegradable. As Dipotassium oxide/Potassium oxide is ready biodegradable a ready biodegradability study does not need to be conducted.
Therefore testing for Biodegradation in water does not need to be performed

Key value for chemical safety assessment
