Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

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.
