Abstract
1,1,2-Trichloroethane is a possible human carcinogen, classified as weight-of-evidence Group C under the EPA Guidelines for Carcinogen Risk Assessment. Evidence on potential carcinogenicity from animal studies is 'Limited', and the evidence from human studies is 'No Data'. The potency factor (F) for 1,1,2-trichloroethane is estimated to be 0.36 (mg/kg/day)-1, placing it in potency group 3 according to the CAG's methodology for evaluating potential carcinogens. Combining the weight-of-evidence group and the potency group, 1,1,2-trichloroethane is assigned a 'LOW' hazard ranking.
