Data waiving:
study scientifically not necessary / other information available
Justification for data waiving:
the study does not need to be conducted because the substance is readily biodegradable

Description of key information

No experimental data on Calcium (S)-lactate are available. In aqueous environments Calcium (S)-lactate fully dissociates into Ca2+ ions and lactic acid. Therefore, the environmental fate of Calcium (S)-lactate can be understood in terms of calcium salts and lactic acid. In accordance with regulation (EC) No 1907/2006 (REACH), Annex VIII, point, column 2, a hydrolysis study is not required if the substance is ready biodegradable. Lactic acid is readily biodegradable, which is also applicable to its calcium salt by way of read-across.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

This information is used in a read-across approach in the assessment of the target substance.

For details and justification of read-across please refer to the attached report in IUCLID section 13.
