Reference
Endpoint:
biodegradation in water: simulation testing on ultimate degradation in surface water
Data waiving:
study scientifically not necessary / other information available
Justification for data waiving:
the study does not need to be conducted because the substance is readily biodegradable

Description of key information

As the substance is readily biodegradable, no further information about biodegradation in water and sediment is required.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

In accordance with column 2 of REACH Annex IX the biodegradation in surface water and/or sediment study (required in section 9.2.1.2) does not need to be conducted as the substance is readily biodegradable. Due to the ready biodegradability of the substance no persistence in the environment is expected and further information about biodegradation in water and sediment are not necessary.
