Description of key information

In accordance with section 2 of REACH Annex IX, the simulation testing on ultimate biotic degradation in surface water (required in section 9.2.1.2) and sediment simulation testing (required in section 9.2.1.4), is highly insoluble in water and direct and/or indirect exposure of the sediment compartment is not expected. In addition, the substance is inorganic and hence biotic degradation cannot occur. Thus measurement of these endpoints is not technically feasible; the identification of degradation products (required under section 9.2.3 of REACH) is not possible.
