Description of key information

Further studies examinig the biodegradation of creatine do not have to be conducted.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

In accordance with Column 2 adaptation statement of REACH Annex IX, simulation testing on ultimate degradation in surface water, information requirement 9.2.1.2, as well as sediment simulation testing, information requirement 9.2.1.4, do not need to be conducted as the substance is readily biodegradable (CSR section 4.1.2.1.2 Biodegradation in water: screening test). Besides, the test substance entering the water is not likely to sorb onto suspended solids and sediment based upon the measured log Kow.
