Description of key information

No data on the biodegradation in soil is available.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

No data on biodegradation in sediments and surface water are available. However, further biotic degradation testing shall be proposed if the chemical safety assessment according to Annex I indicates the need to investigate further degradation of the substance and its degradation products. The test substance was found to be non-biodegradable in an OECD 301B study (CIBA-GEIGY 1997). Hence, it can be expected that the test substance is not biodegradable in simulation tests either. Therefore, simulation studies on surface water and sediments are not provided.
