Additional information

Based on REACH regulation, annex IX, column 2 (specific adaptation to information requirements) the study can be avoided if direct or indirect water and soil exposure is not previewed. Based on the description of uses and the attached exposure scenario, both water and sediment are not exposed to the substance. Due to the general characteristics of the substance and the preliminary screening on biodegradability, the substance is not expected to readily biodegrade in a simulation testing in water and sediment in aerobic conditions.
