Description of key information

No reliable information on acute or chronic effects on birds is available. However, since the substance exhibits a low log Pow (see chapter 4.7), secondary poisoning is unlikely to be a relevant exposure route.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

In Chapter R.10 of the Guidance on information requirements and chemical safety assessment (ECHA 2008, p. 42) concerning the Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH), it is laid down that "the chemicals of concern with respect to secondary poisoning include lipophilic organic chemicals and some metal compounds". Since the substance exhibits a low log Pow (see chapter 4.7), secondary poisoning is unlikely to be a relevant exposure route. Furthermore, the substance has a low potential for adsorption or bioaccumulation and exhibits a very high solubility in water or soil moisture and is readily biodegradable in both aerobic and anaerobic environments. Distribution modelling clearly shows that soil is not the target compartment for environmental distribution. Therefore long term exposure of birds is unlikely.
