Abstract No data are available on human exposure to 2,3-dichlorophenol (Report 110) and limited information is available from animal studies; it has a slight-to-moderate acute oral toxicity and is probably strongly irritating; no genotoxic effects have been observed. Trichlorophenol (Report 111) causes erythema and oedema at the site of application and chronic contact causes mild chemical burns; eye irritation and corneal damage have also been reported; animal studies indicate that the acute oral toxicity is slight and the substance is probably non-genotoxic.
