As indicated in Assessment Report prepared in the context of the possible inclusion of the substance in Annex I of Directive 91/414/EEC prepared by the Hellenic Ministry of Rural Development and Food (April 2008):

The hydrolysed proteins are biodegradable, so their persistence in the environment is very short, without any tendency to bioaccumulation.

Due to the nature of the hydrolysed proteins, the type of uses for the substance and the characteristics regarding its fate and behaviour in the Environment, it could be considered very unlikely the existence of relevant residues of the substance in the soil derived from the uses. In addition, it is unlikely that leaching of substance can occur or that residues can reach groundwater under the proposed conditions of use. For this reason, it is not necessary to carry out the evaluation of the fate and behaviour in the environment of protein hydrolysates.

Following to the evaluation of this Assessment Report, hydrolysed proteins were included in Annex I of Directive 91/414/EEC, as laid down in Commission Directive 2008/127/EC of 18 December 2008 and Commission Directive 2009/153/EC of 30 November 2009.
