Regional Screening Levels for Dioxin
This sections includes links to Regional Screening Levels (RSLs) for dioxin pages. Specific resources are provided below.
- Regional screening table
- Default non-cancer and cancer RSLs for dioxin: These RSLs are based on default (i.e. non-adjusted) exposure factors and current cancer and non-cancer toxicity values for 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-para-dioxin (TCDD).
- Information on site-specific non-cancer and cancer RSLs for dioxin (calculator ). This link provides calculations for developing site-specific regional screening levels for dioxin, based on site-specific exposure factors and current cancer and non-cancer toxicity values for.
For a discussion on how screening levels can be used to develop PRGs and ultimately cleanup goals, see Risk Assessments toxicity values for dioxin.
