IMPORTANT: The fact that a resource is included in this guide does not mean that EPA is endorsing that source.  Nor does it mean that EPA will automatically accept data included in or referenced by that source.   Studies and data will need to meet the requirements as spelled out in the guidance document on data adequacy in order to be accepted under the HPV Challenge Program

The following items are provided as examples of the types of sources sponsors might wish to check.  This list is provided for informational purposes only.  EPA cannot guarantee that any of the sources below contain information on chemicals of interest.  Even if they do EPA cannot guarantee that they contain data on any of the SIDS endpoints for a particular chemical.

Sponsors are encouraged to investigate other information sources at their discretion.  Possible sources of further assistance are identified in the "Obtaining Assistance" portion of this guide.

 Chemical Abstracts

Handbook of Environmental Data on Organic Chemicals (Verschueren)
          Contains data on over 2,000 organic chemicals.  Would be more likely to have environmental fate data than data for other endpoints.  Arranged alphabetically by chemical name.  Includes a formula index.

IARC Monographs on the Evaluation of Carcinogenic Risks to Humans (IARC Monographs)

Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS's) Patty's Industrial Hygiene and Toxicology Disclaimer
IMPORTANT: The fact that a resource is included in this guide does not mean that EPA is endorsing those sources.  Nor does it mean that EPA will automatically accept data included in or referenced by those sources.   Studies and data will need to meet the requirements as spelled out in the guidance document on data adequacy in order to be accepted under the HPV Challenge Program.
