Biodegradation in water: simulation test

According to the REACH Regulation (EC n. 1907/2006) Annex IX, Column 2, the simulation test on ultimate degradation in surface water does not need to be conducted if the substance is highly insoluble in water. The test item is not soluble in water therefore the test has not been conducted.

 

Biodegradation in sediments: simulation test

According to the REACH Regulation (EC n. 1907/2006) Annex IX, Column 2, the sediments simulation does not need to be conducted if direct and indirect exposure of sediments is unlikely. No exposure to sediments, nor direct or indirect, is expected or desired, therefore the test has not been conducted.
