IRIS Public Meetings
UPDATE: EPA is announcing the February IRIS Bimonthly Public Meeting and availability of some preliminary draft meeting materials.
Chemical/Science Events List
EPA's IRIS Program is committed to proactively engaging stakeholders, increasing transparency, and using the best available science to develop IRIS assessments.
These public meetings offer an ongoing dialogue about IRIS assessments under development for interested parties and stakeholders. Environmental protection decisions, based in part on EPA's IRIS assessments, can have potentially large impacts on the environment, human health and the economy.
Because of this, it is important that EPA benefit from stakeholder and scientific engagement to support the best decisions possible.
