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 soil are available. Nevertheless,according to Regulation (EC) No. 1907/2006, Annex IX, Column 2, 9.2.1.3, simulation testing on biodegradation in soil is not required since the substance is readily biodegradable.
