Public Databases Routinely Searched for Hazard Information

As part of developing screening-level Hazard Characterizations, EPA is conducting a targeted search of ‘reliable sources’ for information specifically relevant to characterizing hazards. EPA’s focus on these specific sources is based on their being of high-quality, highly relevant to hazard characterization and publicly available. Furthermore, these sources typically provide information that is directly relevant to EPA’s initial hazard assessment and often include critical reviews of the relevant information provided; and in the case of EPA documents, already follow established Agency guidance in those reviews.
