Biodegradation in water: screening tests

Administrative data

Endpoint:
biodegradation in water: ready biodegradability
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 inorganic
Justification for type of information:
JUSTIFICATION FOR DATA WAIVING
For the inorganic substance a derogation is possible. Barium peroxide decomposes in water in metallic ion and oxygen. Biodegradation test for these degradation products is not relevant either. Consequently, according to the §9.2.1.1 in column 2 of the annex VII of REACH, no test is required.
