Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

Experimental data on the biodegradation of the substance in water and sediment are not available. Based on the screening tests on biodegradability (5.2.1) the substance is considered as not readily or inherently biodegradable. According with Annex IX, column 2 of Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006, simulation testing in water and sediment does not need to be conducted as the Chemical Safety Assessment does not indicate a need for further investigations. According to Annex XI, Section 3 of Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006 simulation tests in water and sediment are deemed not necessary. The release rates to wastewater during manufacture, formulation and industrial use of the substance are negligible. The environmental exposure assessment for the substance indicates no risk for the aquatic and sediment compartment (all RCR< 1; please refer to Chapter 9 and 10 of the Chemical Safety Report for detailed information).
