Biodegradation in water:

Weight of evidence: Based on the read-across approach from experimental results on the analogue substances Wasox-VMAC2 and Wasox-MMAC2 (OECD Guideline 301B, GLP studies), the test item EAC3 was also determined to be not readily biodegradable.

Weight of evidence: Based on read-across approach from experimental data on the hydrolysis product acetone oxime (OECD Guideline 301D, GLP study), EAC3 was expected to be not readily biodegradable.

These results were supported by the prediction performed with EPI-Suite, EPA (USA) v4.1 (BIOWINN v4.10), where the EAC3 was determined to be not readily biodegradable.

Biodegradation in sediment:

Data waving (other justification): In accordance with column 2 of REACH Annex IX, the study does not to be conducted since direct and indirect exposure of sediment is unlikely.

Biodegradation in soil:

Data waving (other justification): In accordance with column 2 of REACH Annex IX, the study does not to be conducted since direct and indirect exposure of soil is unlikely.
