biodegradation in soil: simulation testing
Data waiving:
study scientifically not necessary / other information available
Justification for data waiving:
the study does not need to be conducted because the substance is readily biodegradable

Description of key information

Soil simulation testing is not required since Sodium lactate is considered to be readily biodegradable.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

Sodium lactate is readily biodegradable. According to Annex IX, column 2, of Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006 a study on "soil simulation testing" does not need to be conducted if "the substance is readily biodegradable".
