The Development of Acute Exposure Guideline Levels (AEGLs) is a collaborative effort of the public and private sectors worldwide. AEGLs are intended to describe the risk to humans resulting from once-in-a-lifetime, or rare, exposure to airborne chemicals. The National Advisory Committee for the Development of Acute Exposure Guideline Levels for Hazardous Substances (AEGL Committee) is involved in developing these guidelines to help both national and local authorities, as well as private companies, deal with emergencies involving spills, or other catastrophic exposures.
This Web site is aimed primarily at those interested in the scientific and policy work in developing AEGLs and those responsible for managing chemical emergency programs whose focus is addressing the risks of accidental airborne releases of hazardous substances.
