Description of key information

Cedarwood Atlas oil from the plant Cedrus Atlantica is a Natural Complex Substance (NCS). With 95.2% of the constituents of the oil known, this NCS can be considered as a well defined NCS. The majority of the constituents of Cedarwood Atlas oil belongs to the group of sesquiterpenes.

Based on a prolonged ready biodegradability test conducted with the substance, Cedarwood Atlas oil is inherently and ultimately biodegradable. The biodegradation of the individual constituents was assessed aswell (constituent approach). The conclusion of the constituent approach is that the NCS Cedarwood Atlas oil is considered to be inherently and ultimately biodegradable and therefore supports the conclusion of the ready biodegradability test.
