Endpoint:
biodegradation in soil: simulation testing
Data waiving:
study scientifically not necessary / other information available
Justification for data waiving:
the study does not need to be conducted because the substance is readily biodegradable
Justification for type of information:
In accordance with column 2 of REACH Annex IX, the study does not need to be conducted if the substance is readily biodegradable. The substance is already tested to be readily biodegradable according to OECD criteria. Hence, no further testing on biodegradation in soil is performed.
Reason / purpose for cross-reference:
