Additional information

The mean percent biodegradation for Brominated Epoxy was –2.4%. Brominated Epoxy may not be considered readily biodegradable.

Biodegradation in soil and in water and sediment (simulation tests) were waived based on the fact that the respective substance is used as a building block in flame retardant products, hence no direct contact to soil and low water solubility.
