Abstract The Halogenated Organics Subcommittee of the Science Advisory Board's Environmental Health Committee completed its review of the Office of Drinking Water's Draft Final Criteria Document for Ortho-Meta-Para-Dichlorobenzene. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has used the weight of evidence approach in recommending a classification of B2 for drinking water base on existing animal studies. The Subcommittee concluded that the reasoning offered for the conclusion is scientifically defensible, but it is not the only defensible conclusion. In assessing the issue of carcinogenicity, a key question is the weight that should be signed to the rat data for purposes of this and other issues led most Subcommittee members to concluded that the compound should more appropriately be classified as Category C of U.S. Environmental Protection Agency guidelines.
