Description of key information

No relevant degradation data exist for nickel matte.  Degradation is not an applicable endpoint for inorganic substances such as nickel matte as recognized in the European Union Risk Assessment of Nickel and Nickel Compounds.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

According to Annex IX, Column 2 of Regulation (EC) 1907/2006, "Further biotic degradation testing shall be proposed by the registrant if the chemical safety assessment according to Annex I indicates the need to investigate further the degradation of the substance and its degradation products. The choice of the appropriate test(s) depends on the results of the chemical safety assessment and may include simulation testing in appropriate media (e. g. water, sediment or soil).
