Description of key information

Study conducted to recognised testing guidelines with GLP.

Additional information

In a ready biodegradability test according to OECD guideline 301B,a maximum CO2 evolution of -7.4% after 28d was observed (RCC Ltd. 2002b). This result is supported by the information from a MITI test (Institute of Ecotoxicology Ltd., Japan 2002), OECD 301C, biodegradation: < 1%).

The substance is not readily biodegradable according to OECD criteria. It is poorly biodegradable.

No further biodegradation tests are required by REACH (1907/2006) at the current tonnage band.
