2,6-Dinitrotoluene is a possible human carcinogen, classified as weight-of-evidence Group C under the EPA Guidelines for Carcinogen Risk Assessment (U.S. EPA, 1986a). Evidence on potential carcinogenicity from animal studies is Limited, and the evidence from human studies is No Data. Data available are inadequate for calculating a potency factor (F) and no quantitative inferences can be made. 2,6-Dinitrotoluene is, therefore, assigned the median potency factor range and placed in potency group 2 under the CAG's methodology for evaluating potential carcinogens. Combining the weight-of-evidence group and the potency group, 2,6-dinitrotolune is assigned a LOW hazard ranking.
