Description of key information

Simulation tests for biodegradation in water and sediment are waived.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

A simulation test for biodegradation in water is waived on the basis that the substance is not classified as hazardous to the aquatic environment and a chemical safety assessment is not required A simulation test for biodegradation in sediment is waived because direct and indirect exposure to sediment is unlikely. The test substance entering the water is not likely to sorb onto suspended solids and sediment based upon the measured log Pow (CSR section 1.3 Physico-Chemical Properties), mitigating exposure to sediment.
