Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.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 XI, a simulation test to investigate biodegradation in soil is scientifically unjustified. A simulation test should provide data on biodegradation under specified environmentally relevant conditions. The non-degradation (0 % degradation after 28 days) in a study according to OECD Guideline 301E (Ready biodegradability: Modified OECD Screening Test) and the non-inherent biodegradation (10% degradation after 28 days) in a study according to the OECD Guideline 301 C (Ready Biodegradability: Modified MITI Test (I)) provide sufficient information to confirm the slow degradation in the environment without the need for a further simulation test. No additional information would be obtained through that test.
