This collection of 40 Chemical Hazard Information Profile (CHIP) reports was prepared by the Office of Pesticides and Toxic Substances (OPTS) between August 1, 1976, and November 20, 1979. Chemicals are chosen for CHIP preparation on the basis of information indicating potential for adverse health or environmental effects of significant exposure. The CHIP itself is a brief summary of readily available information concerning health and environmental effects and exposure potential of a chemical. Information gathering for a CHIP is generally limited to a search of secondary literature sources and is not intended to be exhaustive; however, in depth searches on specific topics may be done on a case-by-case basis. In general, no attempt is made to evaluate or validate information at this stage of assessment. Preparation of a CHIP is part of the first stage in the OPTS Chemical Risk Assessment Process. The purpose of the CHIP is to enable OPTS to make a tentative decision on an appropriate course of action for the subject chemical and to identify and characterize problems that may require more thorough investigation and evaluation.
