Notice:

EPA's Science Advisory Board (SAB) Staff Office has announced two meetings for the SAB Chemical Assessment Advisory Committee (CAAC), augmented for the review of the draft IRIS assessment of ethylene oxide (CAAC-Ethylene oxide panel). The first meeting is a public teleconference scheduled for September 30, 2014. The second is a face-to face panel meeting scheduled for November 18-20, 2014 in Arlington, VA.

Description:

EPA is seeking peer review of the scientific basis supporting the human health hazard and dose-response assessment of ethylene oxide (cancer) that will appear in the Integrated Risk Information System (IRIS) database.

Purpose/Objective:

EPA seeks external peer review on how the Agency responded to the SAB panel recommendations, the exposure-response modeling of epidemiologic data, including new analyses since the 2007 external peer review, and on the adequacy, transparency, and clarity of the revised draft. The peer review will include an opportunity for the public to address the peer reviewers.
