Additional information

The substance was not shown to be readily biodegradable in a ready biodegradability assay. Further biodegradation testing, including simulation testing in surface water, sediments and soils, was waived, since the chemical safety assessment did not indicate the need for further investigation, in accordance with Regulation (EC) No.1907/2006, Annexes VIII and IX, Column 2. A validated QSAR model predicted that although the substance was not readily biodegradable, the timeframe for ultimate degradation was weeks.
