Supporting Documents for Perchlorate (ClO4) and Perchlorate Salts

This U.S. EPA IRIS Summary is based on the U.S. Government-sponsored technical review of the "Health Implications of Perchlorate Ingestion" Exit by the National Research Council of the National Academies (NRC, 2005).

The NRC perchlorate committee took into consideration presentations at the committee's public meetings, submitted public comments, and the comments made by technical experts on the draft NRC perchlorate report. The conclusions, recommendations and final content of the NRC (2005) report rest entirely with the committee and the National Research Council. The NRC review follows two external draft toxicological reviews of perchlorate prepared by EPA (1998, 2002) that were also subject to public comment and independent external peer review.
