Review of DoD's Occupational Exposure Limit for TCE (Vapor Intrusion)

Statement of Task

An ad hoc committee will review the scientific and technical basis of DoD''s proposed approach to developing an occupational exposure level (OEL) and cancer slope factor for trichloroethylene for settings in which vapor intrusion is the pathway of exposure. Important elements of the review will be the data selection process, evidence synthesis, dose-response assessments, the use of physiologically based pharmacokinetic models, and other factors associated with calculating an OEL.
