Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

Description of key information

According to REACH Annex IX requirements column 2, the study does not need to be conducted as the substance is readily biodegradable.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

The UVCB polyglycerine substance is demonstrated to be readily biodegradable according to the OECD test guideline 301F. By OECD definition of "ready biodegradability", the substance and its components are expected to biodegrade rapidly and completely in a variety of aerobic aquatic and terrestrial environments. Further (simulation) testing of biodegradation in these specific environmental compartments is therefore viewed as unnecessary.
