Description of key information

BPA-DA was determined to be not readily biodegradable 

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Biodegradation in water:
under test conditions no biodegradation observed

Additional information

The potential for BPA-DA to undergo biodegradation was investigated in a closed bottle test conducted in accordance with OECD 301 D under GLP conditions (Vizon SciTec Inc., 2005). The study was awarded a reliability score of 1 in accordance with the criteria set forth by Klimisch et al. (1997).

Non-adapted activated sludge was exposed to BPA-DA under aerobic conditions for 28 days.

Under the test conditions, no significant biodegradation was observed.
