||Conclusions of this updated review of chlorine toxicity: while there is little direct evidence on fatal concentration levels to humans, results from animal experiments provide a basis for predicting effects on humans. Animal data suggest that an average lethal concentration for 50% of healthy people would be around 400ppm for 30 minutes. Additional data cover chlorine toxicity criteria for hazard assessment and results of a special study on chlorine toxicity carried out in the Netherlands.
