Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

Additional information

Based on the results of the two studies on readily biodegradability as well as the prediction of the BIOWIN QSAR model Benzoguanamine can be considered as not readily biodegradable in water. Nevertheless the simulations give indication on ultimate biodegradation within a timeframe of weeks to months.

As the freshwater compartment has been identified in the distribution modelling as the only compartment of concern and the assessment of the identified uses showed no risk for the environment no further testing on biodegradation in soil and sediment have been proposed in accordance with Annex IX (endpoint & of the REACH Regulation.

In line with Annex IX (endpoint further simulation testing on ultimate degradation in surface water has been proposed. However, as no risks for the aquatic environment were identified in the chemical safety assessment no additional interim risk mitigation measurements have been introduced.
