Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

Description of key information

In reliable studies (Hoecht AG) according to OECD 404 and OECD 405 2,4-Dichlorobenzyl chloride was neither irritating to skin nor to the eye.

Based upon practical experience 2,4-Dichlorobenzyl chloride may induce irritation to the eye, to the respiratory system and to skin in case of partial hydrolytic decomposition with formation of hydrochloric acid. While no statistically reliable information about this observation is available it is however regarded as conclusive for classification and labelling.

This assumption is supported by a study (Fraunhofer-Institut) on skin irritation with a 24h application period of the test substance.
