Biodegradation in water: screening

Key study:

In an OECD Guideline 301C study, conducted according to GLP, the biodegradation of the test material reached 6% (as BOD) after 28 days and 7% (by HPLC) after 20 days. Based on these results, the test material is not readily biodegradable.

Biodegradation in water and sediment

Based on the use pattern of the test material, intentional releases into the sediment compartment are not expected.  In accordance with Column 2 of Annex IX of the Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) legislation, if direct and indirect exposure of sediment is unlikely, a biodegradation in water and sediment study does not need to be conducted, therefore the endpoint is being waived.

According to the OECD Guideline 301C screening study, conducted according to GLP, the test material is not readily biodegradable.

Biodegradation in soil

Based on the use pattern of the test material, intentional releases into the soil compartment are not expected.  In accordance with Column 2 of Annex IX of the Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) legislation, if direct and indirect exposure of sediment is unlikely, a biodegradation in soil study does not need to be conducted, therefore the endpoint is being waived.

According to the OECD Guideline 301C screening study, conducted according to GLP, the test material is not readily biodegradable.
