Description of key information

In accordance with column 2 of REACH (Regulation 1907/2006/EC) Annex VIII, a test for hydrolysis as a function of pH does not need to be conducted as the substance is readily biodegradable. Therefore the study is waived.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

Quaternary ammonium compounds, C12-18-alkylbis(hydroxyethyl)methyl, chlorides are readily biodegradable. Therefore hydrolysis testing has been waived. They do not contain hydrolysable covalent bonds, therefore degradation through hydrolysis would not be expected based on chemical structure.
