Description of key information

In accordance with REACH Annex XI section 2, the biodegradation in water and sediment: simulation tests are omitted on the basis that the investigations are not technically feasible due to the test material being inorganic.  

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

-In accordance with Section 2 of REACH Annex XI, the simulation testing on ultimate biotic degradation in surface water (required in section 9.2.1.2) is not required as the substance is inorganic and hence biotic degradation cannot occur. Thus measurement of this endpoint is not technically feasible.

 

-In accordance with section 2 of REACH Annex XI, the simulation testing on ultimate biotic degradation in surface water (required in section 9.2.1.4) is not required as the substance is inorganic and hence biotic degradation cannot occur. Thus measurement of this endpoint is not technically feasible.

 

-In accordance with REACH Annex XI section 2, the identification of degradation products (required under section 9.2.3) does not need to be conducted as the substance is inorganic and hence neither biotic nor abiotic degradation will occur. There will therefore be no degradation products.
