Endpoint:
biodegradation in water: simulation testing on ultimate degradation in surface water
Data waiving:
study scientifically not necessary / other information available
Justification for data waiving:
the study does not need to be conducted because the substance is readily biodegradable
Endpoint:
biodegradation in water: sediment simulation testing

Description of key information

Data waiving in accordance with column 2 of REACH Annex IX

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

In accordance with column 2 of Annex IX, the study on simulation testing on ultimate degradation in surface water and sediment does not need to be conducted if the substance is readily biodegradable. The substance is already tested to be readily biodegradable according to OECD criteria. Hence, no further testing on biodegradation e. g. in surface water or sediment is performed.
