Additional information

Experimentally derived values on hydrolysis and photooxidation of Biofert are not available. In Annex VIII of Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006, it is laid down that further degradation testing shall be considered if the chemical safety assessment according to Annex I indicates the need to investigate further the degradation of the substance. According to reliable study results, Biofert Plusz is considered to be rapidly biodegraded in the environment and the bioaccumulation potential is regarded to be insignificant. Therefore, the performance of experimental studies on hydrolysis or photodegradation are assumed to be scientifically not justified.
