This document summarizes current scientific information regarding the effects of chromium on man and the environment. The observed effects, as presented herein, constitute the health basis from which the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency will make determinations regarding the possible listing and regulating of chromium as a hazardous air pollutant under the Clean Air Act. Specifically, this document discusses the following topics: physical and chemical properties of chromium; environmental distribution and cycling; and chromium metabolism, toxicology and essentiality. The document also identifies the factors most germane to assessing quantitative human health risks.
