Additional information

In accordance with column 2 of Annex VIII, the study does not need to be conducted if the substance is readily biodegradable. Formamide is readily biodegradable following OECD criteria.

Available data indicate that formamide hydrolyses slowly at ambient temperature and at neutral pH values. Degradation is accelerated at higher temperatures and acidic or alkaline pH values.
