Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

According to chapter R16 of the “Guidance on information requirements and Chemical Safety Assessment” (ECHA, 2016), substances that may pose a risk on birds may be assessed on the basis of mammalian toxicity data. For substances that are classified as “Repr. 1 [A,B]”, “Repr. 2”, “Lact.”, “STOT RE 1” or “STOT RE 2” with at least one of the hazard statements H360 “May damage fertility or the unborn child”, H361 “Suspected of damaging fertility or the unborn child”, H362 “May cause harm to breastfed children”, H372 “Causes damage to organs through prolonged or repeated exposure”, or H373 “May cause damage to organs through prolonged or repeated exposure”, secondary poisoning can be a relevant route of exposure. As the test substance is not classified as toxic or harmful as above, the substance is not considered to cause toxic effects in predators. Additionally, the bioaccumulation potential is low and thus the test substance is considered to cause little or no hazard to predators. Therefore, and due to animal welfare reasons, a long term toxicity study on birds is scientifically unjustified.
