UPDATE: EPA has finalized the Agenda for the upcoming formaldehyde workshop to be held on April 30th and May 1st, 2014, at the Crystal City Marriott at Reagan National Airport in Arlington, Virginia. New details provided in the final Agenda include a list of confirmed speakers, additional information on the timing and format of the workshop sessions, slightly revised discussion questions which have been edited to improve clarity, and a description of the recently-added “wrap-up” session at the end of the workshop.
EPA is currently revising its Integrated Risk Information System (IRIS) assessment of formaldehyde. This assessment addresses both noncancer and cancer human health effects that may result from chronic inhalation exposure to this chemical. To facilitate discussion of several scientific issues pertinent to the assessment, EPA will convene a state-of-the-science workshop. This workshop will be open to the public, broadcast by webinar/teleconference, and will take place in Arlington, VA.
