Description of key information

No data on the biodegradation of the test substance in soil are currently available.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

No data on the biodegradation of the test item in soil are available. However, further biotic degradation testing shall be proposed if the chemical safety assessment according to Annex I indicates the need to investigate further degradation of the substance and its degradation products. The test substance was found to be biodegradable (70-80% degradation after 28 days, 10 -day window was not met, OECD 301B study, BASF SE 22G0642/12G243, 2013). Based on these data the test substance is not expected to persist in the environment. It is assumed that simulation studies in soil would not reveal any different findings. Therefore, simulation studies in soil are not provided.
