Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

In accordance with Regulation (EC) No. 1907/2006, Annex VIII simulation testing on ultimate degradation in surface water and sediment is not required. Glyceryl undecylenate (CAS 123759-97-7) is considered readily biodegradable. According to the ECHA Guidance on information requirements and chemical safety assessment, Chapter R.7b a simulation test would not provide any new findings since a rapid mineralization in the environment is already assumed (ECHA, 2014).
