Additional information

According to REACH Annex IX Section 9.2.1.3 soil simulation testing is required for substances with a high potential for adsorption to soil. However column 2 of section 9.2.1.3 states that the study need not be conducted if the substance is readily biodegradable, or if direct and indirect exposure of soil is unlikely. The substance is readily biodegradable and hence the study is scientifically unjustified.
