Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

No data on the biodegradation in water and sediment in simulation tests is 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 301F study (RCC 1999). This result is supported by another biodegradation study.

Hence, it can be expected that the test substance is not biodegradable in simulation tests either. Therefore, simulation tests in water and sediments are not provided.
