Phototransformation in water is no requirement under Reach.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

As phototransformation in water is not a standard information requirement according to Regulation (EC) No. 1907/2006 and there is no indication from the Chemical Safety Assessment according to Annex I on the need to investigate further the fate and behavior of the substance (Annex X requirement), no further testing is considered necessary. Available supporting data for subcategory 1 members indicate that some EDTA species, especially iron complexes, are to a certain degree photolysable.
