Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

In accordance with Annex VIII, column 2 (9.2.2.1) of Regulation (EC) No. 1907/2006, testing for hydrolysis as a function of pH is not required as the substance is readily biodegradable. Since Sodium methyl cocoyl taurate is readily biodegradable, it is expected to be eliminated from the aquatic environment within a short period of time.
