Additional information

In accordance with Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006, Annex IX, Section 9.2, 9.2.1.2 and 9.2.1.4, Column 2, the simulation test on ultimate degradation in surface water and sediment does not need to be conducted as the chemical safety assessment according to Annex I indicates that there is no need to investigate further the degradation of the substance and its degradation products. The risk characterization ratios (RCRs) of the chemical safety assessment are below 1, indicating that the risks are acceptable. Therefore, no biodegradation studies in surface water and sediment will be provided.
