Description of key information

(7 d) NOEC 1.0 mg/L,read-across from a structural analogue, the linear isomer octan-1-ol.
In accordance with Column 2 of REACH Annex IX, the study does not need to be conducted.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

Experimental data

A comprehensive long-term toxicity study is not available, but a shorter version of an early life stage toxicity test, commonly used as an early screening method, with octan-1-ol is available (see section 6.1.1 Pickering et al. 1996). A 7 day NOEC value equivalent to 1.5 mg/L was determined for the effects of octan-1-ol on survival and growth of the larvae of the freshwater fish Pimephales promelas. The study reflects the only reliable value that is available for this endpoint. However, a longer term toxicity study has been waived.

Data waiver

In accordance with Column 2 of REACH Annex IX, the long-term aquatic toxicity to fish study (required in Section 9.1.6) does not need to be conducted as the chemical safety assessment according to Annex I indicates that this is not necessary.
