Nickel is assigned a hazard ranking of 'LOW', based on limited animal evidence of carcinogenicity (Group C). The available data are not suitable for estimating nickel's potency. Nickel carbonyl is assigned a hazard rating of 'MEDIUM', based on its classification as a probable human carcinogen (Group B2) and the unsuitability of the data for estimating its potency. Nickel ammonium sulfate, nickle chloride, nickel cyanide, nickel hydroxide, nickel nitrate, and nickel sulfate are assigned hazard rankings of 'LOW', based on a hypothesis that the nickel ion could be the ultimate carcinogenic form of nickel and on some evidence of carcinogenic activity by some nickel salts.
