Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

According to chapter R.7c “Endpoint specific guidance” of the “Guidance on information requirements and chemical safety assessment” published by ECHA (2012) testing for avian toxicity may not be required if a risk for secondary poisoning is negligible (e.g. if the substance is readily biodegradable, has a low potential for bioaccumulation and moreover there is no evidence of toxicity in mammalian repeat dose or reproduction tests). Regarding the results from available mammalian studies of the LCAE category members, all category members are not classified for either repeated dose or for toxicity on reproduction. In addition no adverse effects were observed in the aquatic tests up to the water solubility limit. Furthermore, the test substance is readily biodegradable and the potential for bioaccumulation is assumed to be low (see expert statement on bioaccumulation in IUCLID Section 5.3). Thus, the LCAE category members have a negligible risk for secondary poisoning and there is no need to investigate further the effects on birds.
