Description of key information

The following studies waived due to the ready biodegradability of the test substance.
1) Simulation testing on ultimate degradation in surface water
2) Sediment simulation testing

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

Simulation testing on ultimate degradation in surface water: According to REACH Annex IX section 9.2.1.2 Column 2 this study can be waived if the test substance is readily biodegradable. Therefore as the substance is readily biodegradable, a waiver is justified.

Sediment simulation testing: According to REACH Annex IX section 9.2.1.4 Column 2 this study can be waived if the test substance is readily biodegradable. Therefore as the substance is readily biodegradable, a waiver is justified.
