Description of key information

No bird toxicity studies are available for epichlorohydrin.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

Toxicity to birds is not necessary for epichlorohydrin since a mammalian data set is available, which examines the effects of epichlorohydrin on terrestrial vertebrates. In addition, direct and indirect exposure of the terrestrial environment is unlikely since epichlorohydrin is manufactured and used under controlled conditions and is not expected to be released into the environment (See Chapter 9 of the CSR). Thus, toxicity to birds is waived for epichlorohydrin.
