Additional information

2,2'-[ethane-1,2-diylbis(oxy)]bisethyl diacetate (CAS 111-21-7) is considered to be readily biodegradable in one confirmatory GLP-Guideline study (Clarke, 2012). The substance is thus expected to be rapidly degraded by microorganisms in both the aquatic and terrestrial environments and therefore in accordance with Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006, Annex IX, column 2, 9.2.1.2. , 9.2.1.3 and 9.2.1.4., further simulation tests on biodegradation in water, sediment and soil are not necessary.
