The memorandum clarifies the policy stated at section 7.4.1 of the December 1988 Risk Assessment Guidance for Superfund (Volume I) Human Health Evaluation Manual (Part A) (RAGS) on the use of Integrated Risk Information System (IRIS) values in performing health risk assessments. Recent litigation has called attention to the need for all persons involved in the Superfund risk assessment and remedy selection processes to be fully aware of the role of IRIS values in those processes.
