Description of key information

The biodegradation test in water and sediment can be waived.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

The substance is highly insoluble (water solubility: < 0.025 mg/l), thus the simulation test for biodegradation in water can be waived according to REACH Annex IX column 2. And based on the screening test of biodegradation in water, we can conclude the test substance is persistent and very persistent substance for the worst case consideration. Thus, no more simulation test for sediment is needed.
