Additional information

Based on the test results of an OECD 301 B study conducted with the read-across substance 2,2-dimethyl-1,3-propanediyl dioleate (CAS No. 42222-50-4), the substance Fatty acids, C6-18, 2,2-dimethyl-1,3-propanediyl esters (CAS No. 91031-27-5) can be regarded as readily biodegradable according to the OECD criteria. The substance is thus expected to be rapidly degraded by microorganisms in both the aquatic and terrestrial environments. Therefore, in accordance with Regulation (EC) No. 1907/2006, 9.2.1.2 – 9.2.1.4, further simulation testing for water and sediment or soil biodegradation is not necessary.
