2-(2-ethoxyethoxy)ethyl acetate (CAS 112-15-2) is considered to be readily biodegradable according to the OECD criteria in one confirmatory GLP-Guideline study according to OECD 301C. The substance is thus expected to be rapidly degraded by microorganisms in both the aquatic and terrestrial environments as well, and therefore in accordance with Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006, Annex IX, column 2, -, further simulation tests on biodegradation in water, sediment and soil are not necessary.
