Description of key information

In accordance with column 2 of REACH Annex X, reproductive toxicity tests to birds (required in section 9.6.1) do not need to be conducted as a large mammalian dataset is available (see toxicological studies). In addition 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. 
An experimental bioconcentration factor of 2 indicates that 1,2-dichloroethane will not bioconcentrate in birds and is not expected to bioaccumulate in the food chain.
