The Health and Environmental Effects Profile for Hexachlorocyclohexanes was prepared to support listings of hazardous constituents of a wide range of waste streams under Section 3001 of the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) and to provide health-related limits for emergency actions under Section 101 of the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act (CERCLA). Quantitative estimates have been presented provided sufficient data are available. Hexachlorocyclohexanes has been evaluated as a carcinogen. The human carcinogen potency factors (ql*) for Alpha-HCH, Beta-HCH, Gamma-HCH and T-HCH are 6.34, 1.84, 1.33 and 1.76, respectively, for oral exposure. The Reportable Quantity (RQ) value of 1, 10, 100, 1000 or 5000 pounds is used to determine the quantity of a hazardous substance for which notification is required in the event of a release as specified by CERCLA based on chronic toxicity. The RQ values for Alpha-HCH, Beta-HCH, Gamma-HCH and T-HCH are 1000, 1000, 100 and 100, respectively. Existing data are insufficient to determine an RQ value for Delta-HCH and Epsilon-HCH.
