Review of Provisional Health Advisories for Perfluorooctanoic

Citation:

Description:

The Provisional Health Advisories for Perfluorooctanoic Acid (PFOA) and Perfluorooctane Sulfonate (PFOS) was developed in response to a rapidly evolving situation in Decatur, AL. OW drafted the Provisional Health Advisory to provide reference values that can be used by Region 4 staff in evaluating concentrations of PFOA and PFOS in water in this particular situation. However, the Provisional Health Advisory is not site-specific and can be used at other sites across the US as needed.

Purpose/Objective:

OW subjected the Provisional Health Advisory to internal and limited external peer review because of the short time frame in which it was needed. The review covered the scientific accuracy and adherence to appropriate risk assessment practice.
