Description of key information

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

Testing is waived, since the chemical safety assessment according to Annex I indicates that it is not necessary to conduct either a simulation test on ultimate degradation in surface water or a sediment simulation test, or to identify degradation products. Simulation tests (water and sediments) are not considered necessary, since the risk characterisation ratios (RCRs) for the aquatic and sediment compartment, based on the assumption that the hydrolysis product is not biodegradable, are <1.
