Description of key information

In accordance with Column 2 of REACH Annex X the study does not need to be conducted since mammalian data demonstrate no long term tsystemic effects.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

Short-term toxicity

Only short term oral toxicity data to birds exists. A 21 day LC5 0value of 176000 ppm has been determined for the effects of dodecanol on mortality of Gallus domesticus (chicken). The study reflects the only value available with this substance for this endpoint.

However this study has not been selected as key since ECHA (2011, Guidance on information requirements and chemical safety assessment Part B: Hazard Assessment Dec 2011, version 2.1) reads: "due to poor correlation between short and long term effects, only long term studies are considered suitable for CSA purposes".

Long-term toxicity

In accordance with Column 2 of REACH Annex X, studies on long-term or reproductive toxicity to birds (required in section 9.6.1) do not need to be conducted due to the existence of mammalian data demonstrating no long term systemic effects to higher organisms. Secondary poisoning assessment is not required for this substance due to its expected low bioconcentration factor and lack of systemic effects in mammals.
