National Academy of Sciences Building
2101 Constitution Ave NW Washington DC 20418
A committee of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine will hold a workshop on February 1-2, 2018, in Washington, DC, to review advances made to the Integrated Risk Information System (IRIS). At the request of the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), this committee will assess changes that have been implemented (or plan to be implemented) by EPA in response to recommendations made in previous National Academies reports, such as Review of EPA's Integrated Risk Information System (IRIS) Process and Review of the Environmental Protection Agency's Draft IRIS Assessment of Formaldehyde. This public workshop will serve as a venue for EPA to present its changes to the IRIS program and to provide an opportunity for stakeholder input on the changes to the program. The committee will base its assessment on information received at this workshop.
