biodegradation in soil: simulation testing
Data waiving:
study scientifically not necessary / other information available
Justification for data waiving:
the study does not need to be conducted because the substance is readily biodegradable

Description of key information

Soil simulation testing is not required since sodium-S-lactate is considered to be readiy biodegradable.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

Sodium-S-lactate is readily biodegradable. According to Annex IX, column 2, of Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006 a study on "soil simulation testing" does not need to be conducted if "the substance is readily biodegradable".
