Description of key information

Waiving of study:
In accordance with column 2 of REACH Annex IX, a simulation test on biodegradability in soil (required in section 9.2.1.3) does not need to be conducted as the test substance is of inorganic nature.
Due to its oxidising properties, hypochlorite will react with organic material in soil and degrades very rapidly. The kinetic model of Vandepitte and Schowanek indicates that hypochlorite is eliminated within the first minutes of the test.
