Additional information

Based on a ready biodegradation study conducted with the read-across substance Anhydro-D-glucitol trioleate (CAS No. 26266-58-0), the substance Sorbitan, (Z)-9-octadecenoate (2:3) (CAS No. 8007-43-0) is considered readily biodegradable. The substance is thus expected to be rapidly degraded by microorganisms in both the aquatic and terrestrial environments. Therefore in accordance with Regulation (EC) No. 1907/2006, 9.2.1.2 – 9.2.1.4, further simulation testing for water and sediment or soil biodegradation is not necessary.
