The substance is readily biodegradable.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

According to Regulation (EC) 1907/2006, Annex IX, Section and, column 2, a simulation study on ultimate degradation in surface water or degradation in sediment do not need to be conducted if the substance is readily biodegradable. The substance is readily biodegradable (> 90% DOC removal in 15 d; BASF AG, 1999, report no. 98/0889/21/1; see IUCLID Ch. 5.2.1). Therefore, no biodegradation studies in surface water or sediment will be provided.
