EPA Publishes the Peer Review Plans for the Risk Assessments on the Seven 2012 Work Plan Chemicals


Today, August 17, 2012, EPA published the Peer Review Plans for the risk assessments on the seven 2012 work plan chemicals. The plans, which form part of the Agency’s Peer Review Agenda, describe the focus of the risk assessment being conducted on each chemical, indicate how peer reviewers will be selected and how the peer review will be conducted, and provide the time line for the reviews. As indicated in the plans, EPA will publish a notice in the Federal Register when the External Review Drafts of the assessments become available, and will provide a 60-day period for public comment on the drafts before the peer review begins. The public will also be able to present comments at the teleconference panel review meetings.
