Information on the physical-chemical properties of CAS RN 28629-66-5 and additional ecotoxicological studies were submitted in response to identification of it as a substance requiring further assessment.

As a result of the new information received, ecological concern with the substance is reduced. It does, however, still require further assessment due to the rapid screening results from a human health perspective.

The rapid screening assessment report has been updated to reflect these changes and the new information will be considered at the time of further assessment.
