Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

In accordance with column 2 of Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006 Annex VIII, IX and X further biotic degradation tests shall be proposed if the result of the Chemical Safety Assessment according to Annex I indicates the need to investigate further the degradation of the substance and its degradation products. The substance is poorly biodegradable in water and it is concluded that the substance is likely to persist. Since comparable degradation rates are expected for biodegradation in water and sediment, no further degradation studies are proposed.
