Description of key information

Data from mammalian toxicity available.

Secondary poisoning of no concern for diethylamine.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

No studies on the toxicity to birds are available for the substance.

In Annex X Section 9.6.1 of Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006, it is laid down that any need for testing should be carefully considered taking into account the large mammalian dataset that is usually available at this tonnage level. In case of diethylamine (CAS 109-89-7) a mammalian dataset is available. In addition, the hazard assessment of the substance reveals neither a need to classify the substance as hazardous according to Regulation EC 1272/2008 and its second adaptation 286/2011, nor is it a PBT or vPvB substance, nor are there any further indications that the substance may be hazardous to the environment.

In addition, indirect exposure to the soil compartment is unlikely since the substance is readily biodegradable according to OECD criteria. For substances being considered as „readily biodegradable“, it can be assumed that they will be biologically degraded within the STP-process (see IUCLID Ch. 5.2.1). Direct exposure is not intended based on the exposure assessment as the substance is not applied directly to soil. Based on the low log Kow and the low estimated BCF values, bioaccumulation in organisms is not to be expected (see IUCLID Ch. 5.3.1). 

Hence, secondary poisoning is of no concern. 

Therefore, and for reasons of animal welfare, no tests on birds are performed.
