Description of key information

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

In accordance with REACH Annex IX column 2, simulation tests in water and sediment need not be conducted as the chemical safety assessment according to Annex I does not indicate the need to investigate further the degradation of the substance and its degradation products. The risk characterisation at the regional scale demonstrated safe use for both the water and sediment compartments and no further refinement of the estimated water and sediment half-life is needed. Furthermore the substance is considered to be inherently and ultimately biodegradable and not persistent.
