This report contains general information on chlorinated paraffins (CPs) concerning the existing standards, emissions, exposure levels and effect levels. The document is to be considered as a start for the national discussion during an exploratory meeting on integrated criteria documents and serves internationally as a background document for the working group on diffuse sources of the Paris commission (PARCOM). In the Netherlands no production of CPs takes place. No emission data are available, but the major emissions are likely to occur through use and disposal of products containing CPs. CPs are rather persistent in the environment. Bioconcentration occurs, short-chain CPs with a high level of chlorination showing the highest potential. Biomagnification, however, is not to be expected. Toxicologically shorter chain CPs are the most important ones. Animalstudies indicate that these CPs may have carcinogenic potential but are non-genotoxic. A tolerable daily intake of 0.01 mg/kg bw/day at life-time exposure for humans was calculated. For ecosystems provisionally maximum permissible concentrations of 1 mug/l and 50 mg/kg were derived for surface water and sediment/soil, respectively. The exposure levels in the Netherlands are expected not to exceed these levels.
