Step 2 Topic: Data Sources for Further Analysis
After identifying a group of chemicals for priority review using the factors and data sources in Step 1, EPA in Step 2 plans to use information from additional exposure and hazard data sources to further analyze the chemicals to select specific chemicals for further assessment, including possible risk assessment and risk management action under TSCA.
- Should additional data sources beyond those listed in Tables 2 and 3 be included? What sources, and why?
- Please explain your concerns or comments, if any, relating to the data sources featured in Tables 2 and 3.
- Please discuss which data sources, if any, should receive greater consideration for analysis than others.
