Description of key information

In accordance with column 2 of Annex IX, this study need not be conducted if direct and indirect exposure of soil is unlikely. 2,6-Xylenol is used as a chemical intermediate in the manufacture of polymers and certain pesticides. The Chemical Safety Assessment indicated no need to investigate further the degradation of the substance and it is therefore considered to be justified to omit this study.
