The primary emphasis of this report is a summary of the work that Versar performed in support of the EPA's regulatory activities involving polychlorinated biphenyls over the past four years. The report includes summaries of 24 reports on PCBs that Versar submitted to EPA during this period. Also included are a summary of the uses of PCBs from 1929 through 1979, a review of much of the early literature on the uses and toxicity of PCBs, and a discussion of the various regulatory activities that limited human exposure to PCBs and eventually banned their manufacture, processing, and use.
