Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

According to Regulation (EC) 1907/2006, Annex IX, Section 9.2.1.2, column 2, a simulation study on ultimate degradation in surface water does not need to be conducted if the substance is readily biodegradable. Diethylamine is readily biodegradable (OECD 301C, NITE, 1992; see IUCLID Ch. 5.2.1). Therefore, no biodegradation studies in surface water will be provided.

According to Regulation (EC) 1907/2006, Annex IX, Section 9.2.1.4, Column 2, sediment simulation testing does not need to be conducted if the substance is readily biodegradable. The substance is readily biodegradable (OECD 301C, NITE, 1992; see IUCLID Ch. 5.2.1). Therefore, no sediment simulation study will be provided.
