Description:

The document represents a brief, quantitatively oriented scientific summary of health effects data. It was developed by the Environmental Criteria and Assessment Office to assist the Office of Emergency and Remedial Response in establishing chemical-specific health-related goals of remedial actions. If applicable, chemical-specific subchronic and chronic toxicity interim acceptable intakes are determined for systemic toxicants, or q(sub 1)* values are determined for carcinogens for both oral and inhalation routes. Sufficient data are not available at this time on asbestos to determine either acceptable intakes or q(sub 1)*s.
