Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.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

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

Short-term toxicity

One reliability 4 study is available for the test substance. The study reports a 24 h LC0 of 130 mg/l and an LC100 of 1302 mg/l for the effects of octan-1-ol on Bursaphelenchus lignicolus (pine wood nematode) (Verschueren, 1996).

This data is considered to be indicative only (non assignable reliability) and not suitable for quantitative application as part of the chemical safety assessment.

Long-term toxicity

In accordance with Column 2 of REACH Annex X, long-term toxicity testing with terrestrial invertebrates (required in Section 9.4.4) is not needed as the chemical safety assessment according to Annex I indicates that this is not necessary.

Moreover, considerable technical difficulties would be expected in the conduct of such a test, due to the very rapid biotic removal of the substance from the test system. Please refer to discussion of the long-term aquatic invertebrate and fish studies, and evidence of rapid removal in non-sterilised soils during method development for the adsorption/desorption study with natural soils, carried out with the close structural analogue decan-1-ol, in the environmental fate section.
