Description of key information

Additional information

The substance is not considered to be readily biodegradable in water in accordance with the strict definition. However, it is considered to be inherently and ultimately biodegradable since 70% biodegradation was achieved within 54 days in an extended ready biodegradability screening test.

Assessment of biodegradation in soil, surface water and sediment is not considered necessary. The chemical safety assessment according to Annex 1 gives safe risk characterisation ratios at the regional scale and therefore half-life data from simulation tests is not required to further refine the environmental risk assessment. Furthermore the substance is considered to be inherently and ultimately biodegradable and not persistent.
