Description of key information

Not relevant due to ready biodegradation.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

In accordance with Regulation (EC) No. 1907/2006, Annex IX, Column 2, 9.2.1.3, soil simulation testing is not required, since isopentyl laurate (CAS No. 6309-51-9) is readily biodegradable. As stated in ECHA Guidance on information requirements and chemical safety assessment, Chapter 7b, a simulation test would provide little additional data as rapid mineralisation in the environment is already assumed (ECHA, 2008).
