Abstract Conclusions of this criteria document, translation of a report finalized in June 1991: occupational exposure to chloroprene (chlorobutadiene) causes irritation of the mucous membranes; acute exposure causes depression of the central nervous system. A number of inadequately documented studies describe effects on different organ systems. Epidemiological studies provide no firm evidence for carcinogenic, mutagenic or teratogenic effects in humans.
