Description of key information

In accordance with column 2 of Annex IX, this study was waived as benzyl propionate is readily biodegradable.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Half-life in soil:
30 d
at the temperature of:
25 °C

Additional information

The PBT Profiler and EPI Suite has estimated that the substance Benzyl propionate is expected to be found predominantly in soil and its persistence estimate is based on its availability in this medium. Its half-life in soil, 30 days does not exceed the persistence threshold. Therefore, Benzyl propionate is estimated to be non-persistent in the soil environment.
