UPDATE: EPA hosted a (1 day) Bimonthly Public Science Meeting on September 3, 2014, agenda and meeting materials are available below.
EPA hosted a Bimonthly IRIS public meeting to provide an opportunity for the public to give input and participate in an open discussion regarding preliminary materials that were prepared for IRIS chemicals prior to the development of the draft assessment. This included the following chemicals:
- ethylbenzene: problem formulation
- naphthalene: problem formulation
The objective of this public meeting was to obtain input from the scientific community and the public on the problem formulation materials which frame the specific scientific questions for the systematic reviews that will be conducted in the assessments of ethylbenzene and napththalene. Specifically, EPA was seeking input on the list of potential health hazards identified by the preliminary literature surveys, the availability of new studies, the hazard questions for systematic review, and a public discussion of key science questions that will be addressed in the assessments.
The meeting was held on September 3 , 2014 from 9:00am - 5:30 pm Eastern Time.
The live meeting was held at the EPA Conference Center at 2777 South Crystal Drive, Arlington, Virginia 22202. The meeting was also streamed by webinar/teleconference for remote participants. The meeting was not recorded.
