Health and Environmental Effects Profile for Methyl Isocyanate

The Health and Environmental Effects Profile for Methyl Isocyanate was prepared to support listings of hazardous constituents of a wide range of waste streams under Section 3001 of the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (CERCLA). Both published literature and information obtained from Agency program office files were evaluated as they pertained to potential human health, aquatic life and environmental effects of hazardous waste constituents. Existing data are insufficient to determine a Reference Dose (RfD) or a carcinogenic potency factor for methyl isocyanate. Existing data are insufficient to determine an RQ value.
