EPA first issued cancer guidelines in 1986. In April 1996, new draft Guidelines were released. The Science Advisory Board's (SAB) Environmental Health Committee (EHC) was asked to review the proposed revisions, and met on February 13-14, 1997, in Washington, D.C. The Committee found the proposed Guidelines to be significant step forward in carcinogen risk assessment, and particularly commended the Agency for addressing the controversial aspects of the new Guidelines with a frank unbiased approach. The new Guidelines will cause risk assessors to place greater emphasis on the utilization of all the available scientific information in characterizing cancer risks. However, the Committee also identified areas in which improvement was possible.
