EPA Seeks Comment on Framework for Human Health Risk Assessment to Inform Decision Making
On July 30, 2012, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Office of the Science Advisor published Federal Register notice announcing a 60-day public comment period for the external review draft of “A Framework for Human Health Risk Assessment to Inform Decision Making.” This document was developed as part of an agency wide program by the EPA Risk Assessment Forum. This document will undergo independent peer review during an expert peer review meeting that will be convened, organized, and conducted by a contractor of the EPA in 2012. The date of the external peer review meeting will be announced in a subsequent Federal Register notice. EPA must receive comments on this document by September 28, 2012.
