Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

In accordance with Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006, Annex IX, Column 2, 9.2.1.3, soil simulation testing is not required, since Fatty acids, soya, 2-ethylhexyl esters (CAS 93572-14-6) is readily biodegradable. According to the ECHA Guidance on information requirements and chemical safety assessment, Chapter 7b a simulation test would only hold little additional information since a rapid mineralisation in the environment is already assumed (ECHA, 2012).
