Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

Biodegradation in seawater

Several studies conducted according to OECD 306 guideline were available for members of the category and in all cases the tested substances met the criteria for readily biodegradable in seawater according to OECD criteria.

Biodegradation in sediment

The substance is readily biodegradable. Therefore, simulation tests in sediment are not required.
