||Conclusions of this criteria document, translation of a report finalized in November 1986: chloromethane causes depression of the central nervous system; in higher concentrations it can also affect the liver, kidneys, heart and the haemopoietic system. Numerous cases of poisoning due to chloromethane have been described. A small cohort study among chloromethane-exposed workers at a rubber factory gave no indication of an increased tumour rate.
