biodegradation in water: ready biodegradability
Type of information:
Adequacy of study:
key study
2 (reliable with restrictions)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
results derived from a valid (Q)SAR model and falling into its applicability domain, with adequate and reliable documentation / justification
Internationally accepted method, EPI-Suite, EPA (USA)
Justification for type of information:
See attached the QMRF and QPRF for the QSAR model
other: REACH Guidance on QSARs R.6
Principles of method if other than guideline:
