Description of key information

No data on the biodegradation in simulation tests are available.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

No data on biodegradation in soil are available. However, further biotic degradation testing shall be proposed if the chemical safety assessment according to Annex I indicates the need to investigate further degradation of the substance and its degradation products. The test substance was found to be non-biodegradable in studies according to OECD 301A and one OECD 302C study (CIBA-GEIGY 1991 and 1992). Hence, it can be expected that the test substance is not biodegradable in simulation tests either. Therefore, studies on the biodegradation in soil are not provided.
