EPA released the draft toxicological review for public comment under the Integrated Risk Information System (IRIS) Program. The original draft assessment (January 2009) has been archived but is available on this web page for the sake of transparency.

EPA began an assessment of the potential human health effects of halogenated platinum salts in order to address questions focused on the use of a platinum fuel additive in some clean diesel projects under the Diesel Emission Reduction Act.


EPA has removed the platinum fuel additive from the list of registered additives for use in on-road diesel vehicles. Because of this, the Agency no longer has a need for the IRIS assessment of halogenated platinum salts.
