Description of key information

The substance is readily biodegradable; therefore, no further testing is required. Moreover, the risk characterization ratios (RCRs) of the chemical safety assessment are below 1, indicating that the risks are acceptable.

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. Ethylamine is readily biodegradable ( OECD 301C, NITE, 1992; see IUCLID Ch. 5.2.1). Moreover, in accordance with Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006, Annex IX, Section 9.2 and 9.2.1.2, Column 2, the simulation test on ultimate degradation in surface water does not need to be conducted as the chemical safety assessment according to Annex I indicates that there is no need to investigate further the degradation of the substance and its degradation products. The risk characterization ratios (RCRs) of the chemical safety assessment are below 1, indicating that the risks are acceptable. Therefore, no biodegradation studies in surface water will be provided.
