Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

In accordance with REACH Annex IX, endpoints (simulation testing on ultimate degradation in surface water) and (sediment simulation testing), column 2, the study does not need to be conducted as the substance is readily biodegradable. In addition, sediment simulation testing is only required for substances with a high potential for adsorption to sediment. The log Kow of the test substance was estimated to be <-1.7, demonstrating negligible adsorption potential.
