Biodegradation in water: screening test. Based on read-across approach from experimental data on analogue Methyltriacetoxysilane (79.5% biodegradation after 28 days of incubation), Triacetoxyethylsilane was determined to be readily biodegradable under aerobic aqueous conditions. Furthermore, based on read-across approach on hydrolsysis product acetic acid, the readily biodegradability and inherent biodegradability studies support the conclusion that Triacetoxyethylsilane is readily biodegradable.

Biodegradation in water and sediment: simulation test: Data waiving (other justification): According to the column 2 of REACH Annex IX, the study does not be conducted since the substance is readily biodegradable.

Biodegradation in soil: Data waiving (other justification): According to the column 2 of REACH Annex IX, the study does not be conducted since the substance is readily biodegradable.
