Description of key information

Testing shall be proposed if the results of the environmental exposure assessment indicate the need. As the registration substance needs not to be classified for environmental hazards, an environmental exposure assessment is not required. 
The direct and indirect exposure of sediment compartments is unlikely as the substance is readily biodegradable. The ready biodegradability of the substance is proved in a number of tests conducted under different conditions (aerobic, anaerobic).

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information
