biodegradation in water: sediment simulation testing
Data waiving:
study scientifically not necessary / other information available
Justification for data waiving:

Description of key information

Based on the log Kow of 1.80 propyl gallate does not significantly adsorb to sediment.

According to REACH Annex IX, endpoint 9.2, column 2, further biotic degradation testing shall be proposed by the registrant if the chemical safety assessment according to Annex I indicates the need to investigate further the degradation of the substance and its degradation products. The outcome of the environmental risk assessment based on the available data indicates safe use. Therefore, a corresponding study is not required.

Key value for chemical safety assessment
