||Conclusions of this criteria document, translation of a report finalized in Aug. 1993: human exposure to cyanuric chloride causes irritation of the skin, eyes and respiratory tract. Bronchial obstruction, bronchitis and bronchopneumonia are reported following inhalation of gaseous/particle-formed cyanuric chloride. Cases of allergic contact dermatitis have been reported after repeated exposure; an increased rate in asthmatic illnesses was observed in one cyanuric chloride processing plant. In studies on workers exposed to a mixture of cyanuric chloride and other vapours, there were subjective reports of disturbances of the central nervous system, headaches, body weakness and insomnia.
