Description of key information

In accordance with column 2 of REACH Annex IX, Effects on soil micro-organisms (required in section 9.4.2) do not need to be conducted as direct and indirect exposure of the soil compartment is unlikely. The substance has no high potential to adsorb to soil and is not very persistent.
1,2-Dichloroethane released to land surfaces is expected to volatilize rapidly to the atmosphere or leach into groundwater. Due to this high mobility an accumulation and exposure of the substance in the soil compartment is unlikely. Consequently, no studies on soil microorganisms are proposed for 1,2-dichloroethane.
