Description of key information

Waived: the substance is not expected (log Pow < 3) to adsorp and the substance is readily biodegradable.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

EMA has a logP below 3 indicating a low potential for adsorption. In addition, EMA is readily biodegradable.

REACH annex VIII (9.3.1) states that an adsorption/desorption study does not need to be conducted if:

   based on the physicochemical properties the substance can be expected to have a low potential for adsorption (e.g. the substance has a low octanol/water partition coefficient), or

   the substance and its relevant degradation products decompose rapidly.
