Description of key information

Simulation testing on ultimate degradation in surface water is not proposed by the registrant as direct and indirect exposure of the aquatic compartment is unlikely.  The substance is a monomer manufactured and used industrially in the production of polymers, plastics (thermoplastics), and polymerization processes.
In accordance with column 2 of REACH (Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006) Annex IX, the sediment simulation testing (required in section 9.2.1.4) does not need to be conducted as direct and indirect exposure of sediment is unlikely. The substance is a monomer manufactured and used industrially in the production of polymers, plastics (thermoplastics), and polymerization processes.
