Abstract 3,3'-Dimethylbenzidine is a possible human carcinogen, classified as weight-of-evidence Group B2 under the EPA Guidelines for Carcinogen Risk Assessment (U.S. EPA, 1986a). Evidence on potential carcinogenicity from animal studies is Sufficient, and the evidence from human studies is No Data. The potency factor (F) for 3,3'-dimethylbenzidine is estimated to be 27.4 (mg/kg/day), placing it in potency group 2 according to the CAG's methodology for evaluating potential carcinogens (U.S. EPA, 1986b). Combining the weight-of-evidence group and the potency group, 3,3'-dimethylbenzidine is assigned a MEDIUM hazard ranking for the purposes of RQ adjustment.
