JUSTIFICATION FOR DATA WAIVING
For substances being considered as readily biodegradable, it can be assumed that they will be completely biologically degraded within the STP process. Furthermore, for substances not passing the STP-process but being readily, it can be assumed that they will be also biological degraded in the surface water within a short time. Therefore, tests on sediment organisms are not provided.

Description of key information

As the substance is readily biodegradable, it can be assumed that it will be completely biologically degraded within the STP process. Furthermore, in case it should not pass the STP-process, it can be assumed that the substance will be biological degraded in the surface water within a short time. Therefore, tests on sediment organisms are not required.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

As the substance is readily biodegradable, it can be assumed that it will be completely biologically degraded within the STP process. Furthermore, in case it should not pass the STP-process, it can be assumed that the substance will be biological degraded in the surface water within a short time. Therefore, tests on sediment organisms are not required.
