Description of key information

C12-C18 TMAC is readily biodegradable in water and rapidly biodegraded in the terrestrial environment. Therefore, it can reasonably be assumed that there is no significant long-term exposure of the substance to birds. Moreover, the bioaccumulation potential is also assessed to be of no significant concern. Therefore secondary poisoning is not considered relevant and thus no PNEC oral for secondary poisoning was derived and no risk assessment for secondary poisoning was performed.
