Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

In accordance with ECHA (2008) Guidance on information requirements and chemical safety assessment, Chapter R.7c: Endpoint Specific Guidance, the long-term or reproductive toxicity to birds study does not need to be conducted as this substance is unlikely to pose a secondary poisoning risk and has been shown to be readily biodegradable and to have a low bioaccumulative potential (fish BCF below 100 and no indications of bioaccumulation in mammalian tests). The extensive mammalian toxicity database for di-isodecyl phthalate ester (DIDP) demonstrates a lack of acute and chronic effects to vertebrates. Further, DIDP is not persistent in the environment, demonstrates a low bioaccumulative potential, and is not toxic to aquatic and non vertebrate terrestrial organisms and plants. The sum total of these data establish a weight of evidence that strongly supports the conclusion that DIDP will not produce acute or chronic effects in birds, thereby eliminating the need to conduct testing for this endpoint.
