Description of key information

The test substance is not readily biodegradable (by OECD criteria). It is poorly biodegradable.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

The biodegradability of the test substance was investigated in a GLP test performed according to OECD guideline 301B. Using non-adapted domestic sludge no biodegradation was observed after 28 days (RCC Ltd. 2003).

A supporting study according OECD 301C is available (Institute of Ecotoxicology Co., Ltd. 2004). After 28 d no biodegradation was observed. Therefore, the test substance was not readily biodegradable under the conditions of these tests.
