Description of key information

Not relevant due to ready biodegradation.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

In accordance with column 2 of Annex IX 9.2.1.4 of EC 1907/2006 sediment simulation testing does not have to be conducted because the substance is readily biodegradable. As stated in ECHA Guidance on information requirements and chemical safety assessment, Chapter 7b, a simulation test would provide little additional data as rapid mineralisation in the environment is already assumed (ECHA, 2008).
