National Research Council Review of the IRIS Assessment Development Process

Other NRC projects
related to IRIS:

The National Academies' National Research Council (NRC) is conducting a comprehensive review of the IRIS assessment development process. The NRC will review the IRIS assessment development process and the changes being implemented or planned by EPA. The NRC will recommend modifications or additional changes as appropriate to improve the scientific and technical performance of the IRIS Program.  The NRC's review focuses on the development of IRIS assessments rather than the review process that follows draft development.  Additionally, the NRC is reviewing current methods for evidence-based reviews and will recommend approaches for weighing scientific evidence for chemical hazard and dose-response assessments.
