Endpoint:
hydrolysis
Data waiving:
study scientifically not necessary / other information available
Justification for data waiving:
the study does not need to be conducted because the substance is readily biodegradable

Description of key information

The testing is not required as the substance is readily biodegradable.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

Alcohol ethoxylates are not expected to undergo hydrolysis under environmental conditions. However, since the substances biodegrades rapidly in the environment, abiotic degradation processes are of no importance for the environmental risk assessment.
