JUSTIFICATION FOR DATA WAIVING
In accordance with column 2 of REACH Annex X long-term or reproductive toxicity testing to birds (required under section 9.6.1), should be considered taking
into account the large mammalian dataset that is available for this substance. The available data are considered sufficient for the purpose of hazard characterisation, PBT assessment and risk mitigation. It is therefore considered justified to omit this testing requirement.
Additionally, this endpoint allows to consider potential secondary poisoning issues to birds following chronic exposure to MOT(EHMA) via the fish and earthworm food chains. MOT(EHMA) is not expected to bioaccumulate in fish/earthworm tissues based on the results obtained in the frame of the bioacculmulation test carried out on fish in 2009. One can safely conclude that secondary poisoning is not expected as birds will not be exposed to MOT(EHMA).
