MeetingsReview of Advances Made to the IRIS Process: A Workshop - 02/01/18
Statement of Task
An ad hoc committee under the auspices of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine will assess changes that have been implemented or that are planned to be implemented by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for its Integrated Risk Information System (IRIS) in response to recommendations made in previous Academies reports, such as Review of EPA's Integrated Risk Information System (IRIS) Process and Review of the Environmental Protection Agency's Draft IRIS Assessment of Formaldehyde. The committee primarily will base its assessment on EPA presentations and interactive sessions during a 1.5 day workshop at which multiple opportunities will be provided for stakeholder input.
