Additional information

The results of a key and a supporting study show that the substance is readily biodegradable. The results of a valid key read-across GLP study with CAS 577-11-7 (Docusate Sodium) demonstrate that more than 90% of the test substance are biodegraded within 28 days following the ISO 14593/OECD 310 test design. This finding is supported by KOCWIN™ modelling, which shows that the substance is readily biodegradable. Based on these findings, further hazard assessment for environmental compartments surface water bodies, sediments and soils is obsolete, according to the requirements of EC regulation 1907/2006 (REACH).
