Description of key information

No data on the biodegradation in simulation tests are available for the test item.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

No data on the biodegradation in sediments and surface water are available for the test item. 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. By read-across the substance was found to be non-biodegradable in studies concerning ready biodegradability as well as BOD5. It is assumed that the test substance is not biodegradable in simulation tests either. Therefore, simulation studies on surface water and sediments are not provided.
