Description of key information

Biodegradation in soil is waived according to the REACH Regulation (n.1907/2006) Annex I.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

The chemical safety assessment according to REACH Annex I indicates that it is not necessary to conduct the simulation test on ultimate degradation in soil, or to identify degradation products. Simulation tests (soil) are not considered necessary because the risk characterisation ratios (RCRs) for the terrestrial compartment, even with the realistic assumption that the parent substance is not biodegradable, are <1.
