Relativistic configuration interaction calculations with the inclusion of the Breit interaction, quantum electrodynamics and finite nuclear mass corrections have been carried out in the extended optimal level scheme using multi-configuration Dirac-Fock wave functions on the wavelengths, electric dipole transition rates and oscillator strengths of chlorine. Through the use of the active space method, the calculated values are compared with the other available data on He-like and Be-like chlorine and are found to be in very good agreement with them. In this paper we give accurate transition properties from Cl(VIII) through Cl(XVI). These data provide reference value for level lifetime, charge state distribution and average charge of chlorine plasma.
