Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

In accordance with column 2 of REACH Annex IX, biodegradation in soil does not need to be conducted if the substance is readily biodegradable or if the chemical safety assessment does not indicate a need for further investigation. As the substance is the salt of two components which are expected dissociate in water, both components are considered separately. One component (oleylamine) is readily biodegradable, for the other the chemical safety assessment does not indicate a need for further investigation ( Fatty acids, tall oil).
