Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.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

In accordance with column 2 of Annex IX, this study need not be conducted if direct and indirect exposure of sediment is unlikely. While some limited data were identified and are referenced in this dossier, no further study needs to be performed as exposure is unlikely. 2,6-Xylenol is used as a chemical intermediate in the manufacture of polymers and certain pesticides. The Chemical Safety Assessment indicated no need to investigate further the degradation of the substance and it is therefore considered to be justified to omit this study.
