A series of episodes around the world resulted in recognition of the fact that man and his environment are being exposed to hexachlorobenzene (HCB). The finding of grossly elevated levels in domestic animals, such as at Geismar, Louisiana, elicited the attention of local State, and Federal officials. The report summarizes available information in the production, use, and toxicity of HCB and presents conclusions and activities undertaken to gain a fuller understanding of the problems associated with this substance so as to formulate a regulatory posture on this toxic substance.
