Description of key information

Abiotic degradation by hydrolysis is no relevant degradation pathway for the substances of the glycol esters category due to ready biodegradability of the category substances.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

In accordance with Annex VIII, column 2 of Regulation (EC) 1907/2006, testing is not required since the substance is considered to be readily biodegradable. Abiotic degradation by hydrolysis is not relevant since the substance is expected to be rapidly mineralised by biodegradation in the environment.
