Description of key information

Waiving of study:
In accordance with column 2 of REACH Annex IX, simulation testing on biodegradation in soil (required in section 9.2.1.3) does not need to be conducted as direct or indirect exposure of the aquatic and terrestrial compartments for this substance are unlikely. The substance is hydrolysed rapidly (in a few minutes) to the corresponding dicarboxylic acids. In addition based on the intended uses, exposure of soil towards tetrahydromethylphthalic anhydride is not likely.
