Baumann, W. (1992b). Report on the test for ready biodegradability in
the Modified Sturm Test of Irgastab 17 MOK. Testing laboratory:
CIBA-GEIGY Ltd., Product Safety, Ecotoxicology, CH-4002 Basel,
Switzerland. Report no.: Test No.: 928325. Owner company: CIBA-GEIGY
Ltd., AD-Division, CH-4002, Basel, Switzerland. Report date: 1992-12-11.
The key study identified is the Beimborn' one.
A result of 30 -40% after 28 days and 40 -50% after 74 days for
freshwater biodegradation is reported. According to Annex XIII of EC
Regulation 1907/2006, which states the criteria for very persistent
substances as biodegradation in water: T½>60 days in marine, fresh- or
estuarine water; the substance should therefore be considered as a
potentially very persistent substance.
