Description of key information

According to REACH Annex IX, bioaccumulation information in aquatic species is required for substances manufactured or imported in quantities of 100 t/y or more. However, the endpoint for terrestrial organisms is waived based on the following evidence:
Unlikely Direct and Indirect Exposure
2-decyltetradecanol is readily biodegradable. Indirect exposure of terrestrial organisms is not expected as rapid biodegradability means 2-decyltetradecanol will be biodegraded within the STP process and as a consequence a transfer to the soil compartment via STP effluent is not expected. 2-Decyltetradecanol will not be directly applied to soils and as such, direct exposure to soil organisms is not expected. Therefore, no bioaccumulation tests on terrestrial organisms are provided.
