Description of key information

Not relevant due to ready biodegradability

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

No simulation tests investigating the biodegradation of Fatty acids, C12-16 (even numbered) and C18 unstd., methyl esters in water and sediment are available. Nevertheless,according to Regulation (EC) No. 1907/2006, Annex IX, Column 2, and, simulation testing on biodegradation in water and sediment is not required since the substance is readily biodegradable.
