Description of key information

This substance has been found to be neither readily nor inherently biodegradable in OECD guideline tests and different QSAR models. Therefore, no significant degradation is expected in the environment. This is supported by the chemical structure of the substance, which indicates a low potential for biodegradation. Hence, no further biodegradation testing has been conducted as it is not expected to provide any additional information which will significantly alter the assessment.
