Abstract 1,1,2,2-Tetrachloroethane 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 'Inadequate'. The potency factor (F) for 1,1,2,2-tetrachloroethane is estimated to be 1.66 (mg/kg/day)-1, placing it in potency group 2 according to the CAG's methodology for evaluating potential carcinogens. Combining the weight-of-evidence group and the potency group, 1,1,2,2-tetrachloroethane is assigned a 'LOW' hazard ranking.
