The document discusses the quantification of non-carcinogenic effects and carcinogenic effects for dichloromethane.

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.
