The U.S. EPA is conducting a peer review of the scientific basis supporting the human health hazard and dose-response assessments of congeners of polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PDBEs), this review is about 2,2',4,4'-Tetrabromodiphenyl Ether, or commonly referred to as tetraBDE (BDE-47). Following the external peer review this assessment will appear in the Integrated Risk Information System (IRIS) database. Peer review will ensure that science is used credibly and appropriately in derivation of the dose-response assessments and toxicological characterization.
