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

Additional information

Sulfosuccinate of Lanolin Alcohol was found to be not ready biodegradable under the conditions applied in a Manometric Respirometry test, having not reached the pass level (60% biodegradation) during the 10-day window (range of biodegradation: 11.2% - 31.6%) and having showed a maximum biodegradation of 44.8% during the test period (mean of two replicates).

The biodegradability curve can show that, despite the low final value of biodegradability, the test item increase its biodegradability during time.

Even so, the test item did not show any inhibitors effects on the microorganism activity in the toxicity control at the 10 th day of test period.

According to ANNEX IX of REACH regulation n. 1907/2006, the biodegradation in sediment and soil could be waived if direct and indirect exposure is expected. Since in the normal use of the substance any water release is avoided, no concern is related to those compartments.
