Abstract
The document discusses the quantification of non-carcinogenic effects and carcinogenic effects for dichloromethane. The evaluation of non-carcinogenic effects includes a study of short and long term effects in animals and humans, as well as the development of the one-day, ten-day, and long term health advisories. The evaluation of carcinogenic effects includes a categorization of carcinogenic potential and risks estimates. There is a brief discussion on existing guidelines or standards and special considerations such as high risk groups.
