Contents Notes
On Sept. 29-30, 1982 and July 11-12, 1983, 50 environmental scientists from industry, academia, and the EPA met in Cincinnati to explore methods to assess the risks to human health from exposure to multiple chemical pollutants. In 2 workshops sponsored by EPA's Cincinnati-based Environmental Criteria and Assessment Office (ECAO), the scientists examined all relevant routes and durations of exposure to update & expand the single-chemical risk assessment methods developed by ECAO. The first workshop investigated a wide range of possible approaches to assessing risks from exposure to multiple chemicals. The second workshop was limited to a discussion of 5 methods to evaluate risks identified in the first workshop as having the most potential for early application, including interspecies conversions, less-than-life time exposure, and role of pharmacokinetic data.
