Description of key information

Additional information

Limited terrestrial ecotoxicity data are available for tetradec-1 -ene for earthworms and plants (Visser, 2003). However, these studies were non-standard and do not provide sufficient data to derive a soil PNEC for this compound. Experimental terrestrial toxicity studies are not available for the other members of this category.

In the absence of experimental data the Equilibrium Partitioning Method has been used to derive a soil PNEC on the basis of the aquatic data when appropriate. Using this PNEC the chemical safety assessment according to Annex I has not indicated a need to investigate further the effects of the substance and/or degradation products on terrestrial organisms and therefore new terrestrial testing is not required. For category members where a soil PNEC could not be derived using the Equilibrium Partitioning Method due to a lack of aquatic toxicity the chemical safety assessment according to Annex I has also not indicated a need to investigate further the effects of the substance and/or degradation products on terrestrial organisms and therefore new terrestrial testing is not required.
