Description of key information

No information on acute or chronic effects on birds is available. However, since the substance exhibits a low log Pow (see Section 4.7), secondary poisening is unlikely to be a relevant exposure route. 

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

In Annex X of the Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006 concerning the Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH), it is laid down that "the chemicals of concern with respect to secondary poisoning include lipophilic organic chemicals and some metal compounds". Since the substance exhibits a low log Pow (see Section 4.7), secondary poisoning is unlikely to be a relevant exposure route. Furthermore, substance has a low potential for adsorption and exhibits a very high solubility in water or soil moisture. Distribution modelling clearly shows the main target for environmental distribution will be water (see Section 5.4.3). Therefore, exposure of terrestrial organisms is unlikely.
