Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

No short- or long-trm toxicity to terrestrial plants data are available with tetradecan-1-ol (CAS 112-72-1).

In accordance with Column 2 of REACH Annex X, long-term toxicity testing with terrestrial plants (required in Section 9.4.5) 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 in the environmental fate section.
