Description of key information

According to REACh Annex XI, a simulation test to investigate biodegradation in water and sediment is scientifically unjustified. A simulation test should provide data on biodegradation under specified environmentally relevant conditions. The non-degradation (6 % degradation after 28 days) in a study according to OECD Guideline 301 F (Ready Biodegradability: Manometric Respirometry Test) provides sufficient information to confirm the slow degradation in the environment without the need for a further simulation test. No additional information would be obtained through that test.
