Justification for type of information:
It is laid down in the REACH Regulation EC 1907/2006 annex X, section 9.6.1., column 2, that "any need for testing should be carefully considered taking into account the large mammalian dataset that is usually available at this tonnage level”. This endpoint allows to consider potential secondary poisoning issues to birds following chronic exposure to BPA PO via the fish and earthworm food chains. BPA PO has a low potential for bioaccumulation and has no potential to cause toxic effects if the substance is accumulated in higher organisms via the food chain. In particular, according to CLP regulation EC 1272/2008, BPA PO is not considered H360, H361, H362, H372 or H373. BPA PO does not fulfil the T criterion of REACH regulation either. Considering all those elements, and in accordance with ECHA's guidance document R.16 on Environmental Exposure Assessment (v3.0; Feb 2016; pp. 24-25), one can safely conclude that there is no concern for secondary poisoning with BPA PO. Consequently, this study is not scientifically justified.
