On May 16th, EPA announced that the National Academy of Sciences (NAS) will conduct a comprehensive review of the agency's Integrated Risk Information System (IRIS) program's assessment development process.
The IRIS program helps EPA protect Americans' health and the environment by conducting health assessments of over 550 chemicals that may be present in our environment. IRIS assessments inform EPA rulemakings, and the release of final IRIS assessments is consistent with EPA's ongoing efforts to improve Americans' health and protect the environment.
