Description of key information

No studies on sediment organisms are available for propylene glycol phenyl ether.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

According to REACH Annex IX requirements, sediment simulation testing shall only be considered for substances with a high potential for adsorption to sediment. Further, the study does not need to be conducted if the substance is readily biodegradable or if direct and indirect exposure of sediment is unlikely. Propylene glycol phenyl ether is readily biodegradable in freshwater with a low potential for adsorption to sediment (Kow<3), hence a simulation test in water and sediment can be waived.
