Heptachlor epoxide is a probable human carcinogen, classified as weight-of-evidence Group B2 under the EPA Guidelines for Carcinogen Risk Assessment. Evidence on potential carcinogenicity from animal studies is 'Sufficient,' and the evidence from human studies is 'No Data.' The potency factor (F) for heptachlor epoxide is estimated to be 290 (mg/kg/day)-1, placing it in potency group 1 according to the CAG's methodology for evaluating potential carcinogens. Combining the weight-of-evidence group and the potency group, heptachlor epoxide is assigned a 'HIGH' hazard ranking.
