Description of key information

According to REACH Regulation (EC) No. 1907/206, Annex IX, Sections, simulation testing for the sediment is only suggested for substances that have a potential for adsorption to soil. For Annex VI and XI substances a high potential to absorb is classified as a Log Kow of >5 or a Log Koc of >3. The substance has a log Kow of -1.8 (Log Koc not available), and therefore is not deemed to be highly adsorptive substance.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

In accordance with REACH Annex IX, based on available data, the substance is not classified as hazardous for the environment. Therefore degradation simulation testing in soil does not need to be conducted.
