Biodegradation

Biodegradation in water: screening test

The ready biodegradability of the surrogate test substance 3-Diethylaminopropylamine was determined according to the OECD guideline 301A (1993). The test substance was biodegraded by an average of 90-100 % over the test period of 28 days. Under the test conditions the surrogate test substance was found to be ready biodegradable according to OECD criteria.

Biodegradation in water and sediment: simulation test

In accordance with column 2 of REACH Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006, Annex IX, section 9.2.1.2 and section 9.2.1.4, no study on biodegradation in water and sediment needs to be conducted if the test substance is biodegradable under enhanced conditions. A read across study on the read across substance 3-Diethylaminopropylamine demonstrate that the surrogate substance is biodegradable. Thus no further biodegradation testing in water and sediment is required.

Biodegradation in soil

In accordance with column 2 of REACH Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006, Annex IX, Section 9.2.1.3, no study on biodegradation in soil needs to be conducted if the test substance is biodegradable under enhanced conditions. A read across study on the read across substance 3-Diethylaminopropylamine demonstrate that the surrogate substance is biodegradable. Thus no further biodegradation testing in soil is required.
