Description of key information

In accordance with EC 1907/2006, Annex IX, points 9.2.1.2 and 9.2.1.4, degradation simulation in water-sediment systems is not required due to the fact that B-TEGME is readily biodegradable.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

According to EC 1907/2006, Annex IX, points 9.2.1.2 and 9.2.1.4, column 2, simulation testing of degradation in surface waters and sediment is not required due to the fact that B-TEGME is readily biodegradable, as shown in study section 4.1.2.1.2.
