Description of key information

No data on the biodegradation in simulation tests are available for the substance.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

No data on the biodegradation in sediments and surface water are available for the substance. However, further biotic degradation testing shall be proposed if the chemical safety assessment according to Annex I indicates the need to investigate further degradation of the substance and its degradation products. The test substance was found to be non-biodegradable in studies concerning ready biodegradability. A field study at a full-scale STP gave no evidence of biodegradation when the mass flow of one of the substances of the category was monitored (CAS 16090 -02 -1).

It is assumed that the test substance is not biodegradable in simulation tests either.

Therefore, simulation studies on surface water and sediments are not provided
