Additional information

Based on the test results of a valid ready biodegradation study (OECD 301 B) conducted with the read-across substance Fatty acids, C8-18 and C18-unsatd., esters with neopentyl glycol (CAS No. 85186-86-3), Fatty acids, C12-16, esters with neopentyl glycol (CAS No. 85186-95-4) can be regarded as readily biodegradable according to OECD criteria. The substance is thus expected to be rapidly degraded by microorganisms in both the aquatic and terrestrial environments. Therefore in accordance with Regulation (EC) No. 1907/2006, –, further simulation testing for water and sediment or soil biodegradation is not necessary.
