EPA is developing and implementing approaches to enhance its scientific assessments, particularly in the area of increasing transparency and clarity related to evaluating evidence and drawing conclusions. To inform these efforts, EPA will hold a public workshop to provide scientific input on issues related to the use of a systematic review process for evaluating potential health hazards of chemical exposures.
