zinc is an essential element which is regulated throughout the food chain. It does not bioaccumulate/biomagnify. Therefore testing of long-term toxicity to birds is considered not relevant.
The aim of avian toxicity tests is to provide data for secondary
poisoning, if the chemical safety assessment demonstrates the need for
such a study (notably relevant for substances with a potential to
bioaccumulate and high mammalian toxicity). zinc is an essential element
that is regulated throughout the food chain and does not
bioaccumulate/biomagnify. For this reason, the potential for secondary
poisoning is not considered relevant (EU risk assessment, ECB 2008), and
testing of long-term toxicity to birds is considered not relevant.
