Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.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

Waiver: substance is inherently biodegradable and direct and indirect exposure of sediment is unlikely.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

Reliable measured biodegradation studies for o-tert-butylphenol are available for biodegradation in water and included in the dossier. However, no measured biodegradation in sediment are available for o-tert-butylphenol. The key study result for biodegradation in water indicates that the test substance is inherently biodegradable. Additionally, the substance is not to be applied directly to sediment and direct and indirect exposure of sediment is unlikely. Therefore, as per Annex IX of Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006, testing on biodegradation in sediment is not necessary.
