Additional information

Further biotic degradation testing was not performed as the chemical safety assessment according to Annex I did not indicate a need to investigate further the degradation of the substance.

The solubility of the test material in water is extremely low making further biotic degradation testing in water impractical. Due to the low water solubility (less than 1.52 x 10-5g/L at 20.0 ± 0.5 °C) it is expected that the surface water environment will not be the principal environment of concern.

Exposure to the soil and sediment, is so low that no refinement of the PECregional is required. The available data are adequate for risk assessmnet, classification and labelling purposes and PBT assessment, therefore further biotic testing in the soil and sediment compartments is considered inappropriate.

Based on the results of the ready biodegradability screening study, the substance was considered to not to be readily biodegradable.
