EPA’s Office of Research and Development has requested that the SAB review the draft EPA IRIS Toxicological Review of Hexavalent Chromium. The draft assessment includes a hazard identification analysis, which summarizes the chemical properties, toxicokinetics, and health effects associated exposure, and dose-response analysis, which characterizes the quantitative relationship between chemical exposure and each credible health hazard. These quantitative relationships are used to derive cancer and non-cancer toxicity values (e.g., inhalation unit risk, oral slope factor, reference concentration, reference dose).
