|The substance is very toxic to aquatic organisms. Bioaccumulation of this chemical may occur in fish.|
|2,3,4,6-Tetrachlorophenol is a polychlorophenol which, as a group, has been classified by IARC (1999) as possibly carcinogenic to humans, but the data on this specific substance are inconclusive.
No data are available on this isomer but a mixture of tetrachlorophenols may cause irritation of the skin, eyes and respiratory tract.
These substances may cause acute metabolic effects resulting in damage in several organs notably in central nervous system.
Some technical products may contain highly toxic impurities including polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins and furans.
Depending on the degree of exposure, periodic medical examination is suggested.
