Description of key information

In accordance with column 2 of REACH Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006, Annex IX, section 9.2.1.2 and 9.2.1.4 no study on biodegradation in water and sediment needs to be conducted if the test substance is biodegradable. The long-chain alkylsters (C12 - C14) are all readily biodegradable under test conditions. Thus no futher biodegradation testing in water and sediment is required.

Key value for chemical safety assessment
