Description of key information

Waived:  Stability in organic solvents determined to be not critical, as water is in most cases used as the solvent/vehicle.

Additional information

According to Column 1 of Annex IX (EU REACH), testing is only required if the stability of the substance is considered to be critical. The guidance defines potentially critical as: (i) for solubility measurement (e.g. for octanol water distribution), (ii) for fortification or calibration standards, (iii) for dosing using a solvent in ecotoxicity studies, and (iv) for sample preparation in for analytical verification or monitoring programs. None of the above applies to the substance. Therefore testing of stability in organic solvents is deemed scientifically unjustified.
