Notice:

This document is the final report for the 2006 external peer review for the IRIS Reassessment of Dibutyl Phthalate, prepared by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), National Center for Environmental Assessment (NCEA), for the Integrated Risk Information System (IRIS). A panel of external peer reviewers met to discuss their responses to the charge questions on July 28, 2006. This document contains the final written comments of the external peer reviewers.

Description:

The U.S. EPA finalized comments gathered from a public peer review of the scientific basis supporting the human health hazard and dose-response assessment of dibutyl phthalate (DBP) that will appear on the Integrated Risk Information System (IRIS) database. The peer review has ensured that science is used credibly and appropriately in derivation of the dose-response assessments and toxicological characterization.

Purpose/Objective:

The assessment will present reference values for the noncancer effects of dibutyl phthalate (RfD and RfC), where supported by available data, and a cancer assessment. The Toxicological Review will be subject to an internal and external peer review.
