Description of key information

Based on the use pattern of the test material, intentional releases into the sediment compartment are not expected, therefore, this endpoint is waived.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

Based on the use pattern of the test material, intentional releases into the sediment compartment are not expected.  In accordance with Column 2 of Annex IX of the Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) legislation, if direct and indirect exposure of sediment is unlikely, a biodegradation in water and sediment study does not need to be conducted, therefore, this endpoint is waived. According to the OECD Guideline 301C screening study, the test material is not readily biodegradable.
