Abstract This criteria document evaluates the health and environmental effects of 2,4,6-tribromophenol and other simple brominated phenols. Main conclusions: no studies have been identified on the effects of brominated phenols on human health; animal studies indicate that 2,4,6-tribromophenol is non-irritating to the skin but moderately irritating to the eyes. Insufficient data are available for setting tolerable concentration levels. Detailed summaries in French and Spanish.
