Description of key information

Based on a weight of evidence approach containing inherent biodegradation testing and BOD5 measurements, the structural analogue substance can be considered inherently but not readily biodegradable. Ready biodegradability is not considered an intrinsic property for acid dyes due to their fastness. The target substance is therefore considered inherently but not readily biodegradable.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Biodegradation in water:
inherently biodegradable
Type of water:
freshwater
