Administrative data

Description of key information

Substance is a hydrocarbon UVCB. Standard tests for terrestrial endpoints are intended for single substances and are not appropriate for the risk assessment of this complex substance. For the purpose of risk assessment, soil PNECs for hydrocarbon blocks have been derived using aquatic PNECs and the equilibrium partitioning method (EqP) using representative structures.

Studies on long-term or reproductive toxicity to birds do not need to be conducted due to the existence of a large mammalian dataset demonstrating low toxicity to higher organisms.
