Additional information

Based on the result of a study according to OECD guideline 310, 2-ethylhexyl benzoate can be classified as readily biodegradable. The substance is thus considered to be rapidly degraded by both aquatic and terrestrial micro-organisms. Therefore, in accordance with Regulation (EC) No. 1907/2006, Annex IX 9.2.1.2 – 9.2.1.4, further simulation testing for water and sediment or soil biodegradation testing is not necessary.
