The whole of the title molecule, C13H14ClNO, is disordered over two sets of sites with a refined occupancy ratio of 0.560 (6):0.440 (6). The oxime group having a C=N double bond adopts an E conformation. The dihedral angles between the rings (all atoms) are 89.5 (5) (major componenent) and 88.0 (6)° (minor component).
