Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

This endpoint is covered by the category approach for soluble iron salts (please see the section on physical and chemical properties for the category justification/report format).

Testing for this endpoint has been waived as it seems scientifically unjustified. Biodegradation as such is not a relevant endpoint for these inorganic substances. Environmental fate is dominated by abiotic and physico-chemical processes (speciation). The standard guideline tests are not appropriate and thus a waiving argument is provided.
