Description of key information

According to REACH Annex XI, point 2, the guidance given in the test methods referred to in Article 13(3), more specifically on the technical limitations of a specific method, shall always be respected. The test guidelines relevant for biological degradation in soil system are OECD 307 (and its counterparts in EU Regulation 440/2008). The applicability of these test methods is explicitly restricted to organic chemicals. Therefore, as an inorganic compound, Hexagonal boron nitride falls outside the technical feasibility domain of biological degradation testing.

Key value for chemical safety assessment
